Title: Guest Artist Recital: Brock McGuire Band
Date: Sun. Nov 05, 2017
Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Description:


Named "Traditional Irish Band of the Decade" by the Irish American News, multi-award winning Brock McGuire Band is fronted by two of Ireland’s most celebrated traditional musicians: button accordionist and melodeonist Paul Brock and fiddler Manus McGuire. The band also includes multi- instrumentalist Dave Curley (banjo, mandolin, bodhran, vocals and dance) and acclaimed pianist, composer and arranger Denis Carey.

A beacon of passion and precision, integrity and diversity, Brock McGuire Band is steeped in the Irish musical tradition yet seamlessly incorporates elements from American old time, bluegrass, French- Canadian, and other Celtic traditions to create something accessible, recognizable, beautiful, and entirely unique. This ability is exemplified in the band’s most recent album "Green Grass Blue Grass," featuring with 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs. American music critic Bill Margeson has hailed the collaboration as a "masterpiece".
