Burning Bridget Cleary

When: Sat., May 17, 7:30 p.m. 2014

The Mercury calls Burning Bridget Cleary “the Allman Brothers of Celtic fiddle bands, only prettier.” Supporting this claim are Rose Baldino and Deirdre Lockman, a pair of fierce fiddlers whose vocal harmonies and bow-and-string wizardry drive the Pennsylvania-based band’s energetic shows. Backing them, djembe player Peter Trezzi and guitarist Lou Baldino anchor tightly woven arrangements that marry spot-on interpretations of Ireland’s musical past with unbridled enthusiasm. This technical prowess and free-spirited footing power the group’s 2013 release, Pressed for Time, and make audience members reconsider the possibilities of traditional music.

Price: $15-20.
