FolkWorks presents Sligo Rags
Sligo Rags is:
This extremely versatile fiddler is well known in all musical circles in which fiddle is played. His career has spanned decades, and has also included forays into the country, newgrass, swing, and bebop realms. His exciting fiddle style and soaring tenor voice are sure to delight all.
This veteran of the Celtic and Bluegrass music scenes has played guitar and banjo for a number of local Irish and bluegrass bands. Currently the banjo player in local bluegrassers Heart Of 'Grass (headliners at the 2004 Topanga Bluegrass Festival), the guitar player in acoustic jazz band Timbreline (recent nominees for Best Instrumental Band at the 2006 Southern California Music Awards), he has also worked with The Mulligans, Ken O'Malley, Rob Williams of The Fenians, The Band of Rogues (Featuring Terry Casey, Rob Williams, and Chris Pierce of The Fenians) and many other local heavyweights in the Irish realm at many a festival and even more pubs. Rob Williams says of Dave "Burns is accomplished on all of the instruments he plays, comfortable with fingerstyle or the pick. His guitar work, my favorite, is clean, blending Irish greens with blues, jazz, and bluegrass."
Originally from Montreal, Olivier studied jazz at Concordia University. His talent has been recognized around the world through  various performances and projects. In 2005, Olivier founded the  Montreal Sound Policy, an ensemble composing and performing  original soul and funk music. He has  toured around Eastern Canada with a variety of Celtic bands. Before settling in Los Angeles, Olivier was given the opportunity to cruise the world performing with  world famous Dale Kristen (Phantom of the Opera), John Davidson (Hollywood Squares), Alfreda Gerald (Yanni) and  Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees.
JONATHAN BAER (Percussion)--
Having recently obtained a degree in Percussion Performance  from California State University, Long Beach, young Jonathan has already proven himself a monster percussion player in all genres, infusing creative rhythmic instrumentation and ornamentation into everything he plays.  A relative newcomer to the Celtic Music scene, Jonathan has made an effortless transition into this previously unfamiliar territory.
