Other Info
One of the most innovative bands in Celtic music today makes its Tucson debut, with three members from Ireland, one from Scotland, and one from the U.S. The Outside Track plays fiddle, accordion, Celtic harp, flutes and whistles, and vocals, and the band includes two dancers, one is also the fiddler, and one from Ireland--Cillian O'Dalaigh, the guitarist and only man in the band. On accordion is Fiona Black, from Ireland. Two videos attached; one instrumental and one vocal. The vocalist and flute/whistle player on this tour will be Teresa Horgan, from the Irish band FullSet--she is in the current photo above and will do extremely well replacing the vocalist and whistle player seen in the videos.
Two members of the band step-dance and a few step dancers form the Tir Conaill Academy of Irish Dance will also dance in the concert.
February 27 is a co-bill with a trio from Ireland: Socks in the Frying Pan. An up and coming traditional band direct from County Clare, they play fiddle, tenor banjo, accordion, guitar and vocals. Mainly playing traditional music, their instrumentals feature the brothers Shane and Fiachra Hayes, with vocals and guitar by Aodan Coyne. A video of an instrumental set is on top, they also sing traditional and original songs. In addition they are comedic on stage, giving the audience much to laugh about. "Musical daring!, Simply stupendous.!" Irish American News. Socks recently won the Best Group award at the LiveIreland Awards. Visit for more music, video and lots of info.
