ONE FOR THE FOXES - JUNE 15, 2018
General Admission. Adult – $20; Student – $15
Dave Curley, Tadhg Ó Meachair & Joanna Hyde form an exciting and dynamic transatlantic trio that presents a rousing blend of Irish and American folk music, having already won over audiences on both sides of the ocean. The group is made up of Dublin’s Tadhg Ó Meachair (Goitse), Galway’s Dave Curley (SLIDE) and Denver, Colorado’s Joanna Hyde (The Hydes), and features a mix of Irish and American folk music and song – both traditional and newly-composed – presented in an energetic and engaging manner. Their performances strike a tasteful balance between the stories found in ballads across both sides of the Atlantic and the respective instrumental music traditions of these places. Award-winning instrumentalists each in their own right, Dave, Tadhg & Joanna take a unique twist on the diverse strengths of their individual backgrounds, weaving between traditional melodies, their own compositions, and songs from the broader folk canon. The results are highly personalized and thrilling in their daring and forthright grasp of their material. Through a shared deep-rooted passion for Irish traditional music, this trio highlights the vital role of Irish traditional music as an origin of many American folk musics, and explores how those styles can interact with one another in a manner both eclectic and grounded. Having collaborated on the recently-released ‘One for the Foxes’ CD, this trio looks ahead excitedly to its upcoming 2018 US tours.
Note: There have been a number of changes within our venue in respect to fire codes, seating capacities and seating arrangements. In order to accommodate those changes we are offering a seating map to help facilitate these new requirements. We are now offering a greater number of reserved seats and less in the way of open seating for our Early Bird Special so that we can better monitor our night by night capacity. And, we have added an extra night (Thursday) with our headliners making our Early Bird Special for a Full Festival Pass both a bargain and a better experience with our top talent.
