Poor Man's Gambit / Third Annual St. Pat's Prelude
The Sounding Board's Third Annual St. Pat's Prelude features the dynamic Celtic band from Allentown, Pennsylvania, Poor Man's Gambit.
Poor Man's Gambit is a trio of traditional artists comprised of Corey Purcell (button accordion, cittern, vocals, bodhran, dance), Federico Betti (guitar, fiddle), and Deirdre Lockman (fiddle, vocals, dance).
Initially formed as a pickup band in 2015, the band quickly realized that their combination of musical styles was worth pursuing as a more permanent venture, as they are set apart by not only offering a varied array of instrumental combinations, but also by including the visual (and audial) element of dance.
Building on their roots as traditional Irish musicians, the trio's repertoire is also influenced by traditional music of other cultures including France, Scotland, England, and America, some of which can be heard on their latest release 'Land of Sunshine'. Several original tunes have also been included on the album including an air 'Bear Mountain', and a reel 'House on the Ridge'.
