FRI, MAR 1, 7PM – THE SEAMUS EGAN PROJECT

Founder of Irish-American powerhouse band SOLAS, it’s hard to think of an artist in traditional Irish music more influential than Seamus Egan. From his beginnings as a teen prodigy, to his current work as one of the leading composers and interpreters of the tradition, Egan has inspired multiple generations of musicians and helped define the sound of Irish music today. As a multi-instrumentalist, he’s put his mark on the sound of the Irish flute, tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle, and low whistle, among others. The Seamus Egan Project is founded in 2018 and brings Moira Smiley (Jayme’s Stone’s Folklife, VOCO), Kyle Sanna and Owen Marshall.


SAT, MAR 23, 7PM – THE HUNTS

The Hunts are an indie-alternative-folk band comprised of seven brothers and sisters. Born and raised in the south lands of Chesapeake, Virginia, the siblings grew up in a musical home and fell in love with composing their own music. Josh (guitar, lead vocals), Jenni (violin, lead vocals), Jonathan (keys, vocals), Jordan (drums, vocals), Justin (bass, vocals), Jamison (mandolin, vocals) and Jessi (viola, banjo, vocals) pour their blood, sweat and tears into every song and strive to write music that moves hearts with beauty, power and joy.
