Over the years they have refined their sound, blending Celtic Rock, acoustic rock, and Americana to create a style they call “Triple Distilled Celtic Rock.” The group’s on and offstage energy comes not just from their music, but from fans acquired since 2001. Advance tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors and students.
