Cillian Vallely & Kevin Crawford
Flute player Kevin Crawford and uilleann piper Cillian Vallely are two of the most well-known musicians on the Irish music circuit. These two rarely make it out to the West coast to perform as a duo and we are thrilled to welcome them back. They were last here in 2015, and are both long-time members of Lúnasa–one of the most acclaimed and influential bands in the recent history of Irish music.
Friday, March 1st ~ 2:00 and 7:00 pm
Dynamic. Acoustic. Celtic.
The lads of Molly’s Revenge – Stuart Mason, David Brewer, and John Weed – are known for their unique and infectious enthusiasm, and are coming back for their 6th annual SLO House Concert! The classic combination of bagpipes, whistle, and fiddle with a backdrop of guitar, mandola, and bodhran guarantees a most memorable experience for all fans of Scottish and Irish music. Molly’s Revenge has performed at many of the top folk festivals and performing arts events in the USA as well as at prestigious events in Scotland, Australia, and China, and is a perennial SLO House Concert favorite.
March 29th ~ 7:00 pm
Richie and Rosie
Out of Ithaca, NY, Richie & Rosie is the project of banjo player Richie Stearns (Donna the Buffalo, the Horse Flies) and fiddler Rosie Newton (the Duhks). Performing mostly Appalachian-styled originals and traditional tunes, they blend their signature driving, spooky-raga instrumental arrangements with sweet harmonies to create a sound all their own. In 2018, they appeared at MerleFest, RockyGrass, Philadelphia Folk, Watermelon Park Festivals, and the Los Angeles Old-Time Social last Spring, along with the Topanga Banjo-Fiddle Contest and Folk Festival.
April 18th ~ 7:00 pm
