FOLK/TRADITIONAL They're back! The powerful, emotive and critically acclaimed Traditional Irish band, Alan Kelly Gang reunites with Scotland's mesmerizing songstress, Eddi Reader and Trashcan Sinatra's guitarist and songwriter John Douglas. Delivering sheer musical synergy in its most natural form, their performances have been praised for leaving audiences spellbound. Fronted by Ireland's piano accordion maestro, the Alan Kelly Gang (with Steph Geremia (vocals/flute/sax) and guitarist Ian Carr) sits firmly at the cutting edge of the Traditional and World music scene, with strong dynamics, driving rhythms and buoyant harmonies. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi Reader brings joyous life to all forms of song. The former front woman for Fairground Attraction, Eddi has effortlessly developed into one of popular music's most thrilling and affecting performers. Together, they're a match made in heaven. "This is a party looking for a crowd." - The Irish Times (5 stars) "Beautiful music from master musicians... Their arrangements are world class." - Irish Music Magazine "Astonishing." - The Living Tradition magazine
