A rousing evening of Celtic, Irish and American folk music with Dave Curley & One for the Foxes / Rory McNamara & The Ring Of Truth Trio
Together in their trio, One for the Foxes, 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.
The Ring Of Truth Trio (4) brings a combined total of almost one hundred and fifty years of musical experience and influences to your listening ears. Each band member draws from a multitude of different genres including (but not limited to), British and American Traditional Folk Music, Punk Rock, Blues, Jazz, Classical, Old Time, Cajun, Celtic Dance Music, Country Music, Funk and Rockabilly. Rory McNamara, RoxanneOliva, Henry Nagleand latest member, Rebecca Richmanhave somehow managed to distill all these influences into a very unique sound. “Soulful musical treatments ofsome very cool songs,” stated one critic recently. The instrumentation, includes acoustic and electric guitars, pedal steel, mandolin, accordion, piano, fiddle and concertina. Making up the non musical part of the show, there is always a plethora of topical hypothesizing, some good stories and some downright lies. The band likes to have fun at performances. Please come prepared to do the same!
