THE PRESS GANG perform the instrumental dance music of Ireland on fiddle, accordion, and guitar,and now with Hanz Araki in the line-up, terrific vocals (just see below.) Based in Portland, Maine, these three musicians have become popular over the past four years for their skillful playing and deep understanding of the musicand for their humorous stage presence.
This will be a celebration of a new CD, and as such, will most likely have many musical guests. Looking forward to this ALOT!

The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world. It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.
Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.
