Burning Bridget Cleary
Known for their captivating sound and engaging stage presence, Burning Bridget Cleary is currently one of the hottest young acts on the Celtic and folk music circuits. Band-leader Rose Baldino drives this band, delivering a dynamic blend of charisma, crackerjack fiddle work, and tightly woven harmonies. The front of the band is shared with some of the best fiddle talent on the East Coast. Currently featured is Amy Beshara, a multi-talented musician from the the NY-metro Scottish fiddle circles. The driving rhythm and bass end is supplied by Lou Baldino on guitar and Peter Trezzi on percussion. Burning Bridget Cleary has earned a reputation for presenting high-spirited Celtic music at festivals, concerts, and music series all over the eastern half of the U.S., including a 2011 tour to Ireland. While in Ireland, the band had a unique opportunity to visit the rural County Tipperary cottage of their namesake, Bridget Cleary, who is remembered as "the last witch burned in Ireland".
The band broke new ground in 2013 when their fourth CD, "Pressed for Time," hit #1 on the Roots Music Folk and Roots Charts, and finished the year as one of the Folk DJ's most played albums. BBC's second release, "Everything is Alright", was awarded "2009 Album of the Year" by CelticRadio.net in Boston. Their third album, "Totes for Goats" was formally entered into the Traditional Irish Music Archives in Dublin, Ireland.
Burning Bridget Cleary's music is featured on hundreds of radio programs worldwide, including syndicated programs, Thistle and Shamrock, FolkScene, SingOut Radio, and The Midnight Special.
