Boston Celtic Music Festival


 
My band, Stoneybatter Band, is excited to be playing at the Boston Celtic Music Festival next Saturday, January 8th.


 
We will be taking the stage at Club Passim in Cambridge at 2:30 and will play until 3:25. Tickets are $15 for the day, which includes several performances before us, a session, and a performance after us. In addition there are three other stages, performances Friday evening and performances Saturday evening by many talented groups. For more information on performers and tickets please visit the BCMFest website
 
We really hope to see you there!

Stonybatter to Perform at Fiddlers Green Fri. 1/8

Stoneybatter, the band with the name that everyone loves to hate, is back at the Fiddler’s Green this Friday for another evening of Celtic music.

It will be our first performance at the Worcester pub with our complete lineup of musicians. Where else will you be able to hear the pipes, flute, fiddle, banjo, bouzouki, guitar and bodhrán all making noise at the same time?

Here’s a few other reasons why you should come along:

  1. Brian has a new sock muffling his banjo head. Rumor has it that the sock came from one of the Beatles.
  2. Joey ‘Scappy’ Sullivan triumphantly returns as our bodhránist after a scary motorcycle accident that broke his scapula
  3. Buchanan has a new mic that reportedly allows him to dance on tables.
  4. For those music theory geeks out there, Gleason will be featuring his Bb whistle.
  5. You’ll learn new words like Uilleann and Bouzouki to impress your scrabble friends with.

We hope you can make it for a couple of tasty pints, a burger or two, and some good music. The show starts at 8:30!

Introducing Stoneybatter…

Stoneybatter is the newest, baddest band in town. Organized in Ashland, MA. Playing wooden instruments. Smokn’ tunes. Brilliant songs. Find out why people are raving about them. Be the Buzz.

Here’s a few of our favorite fan comments:

refined & rehearsed

outrageous facial hair

I felt like I should have paid to watch ’em

Stoneybatter will perform this Friday, October 9th, at Fiddler’s Green in Worcester. No cover charge. Show starts at 8:30pm but get there early!

All the cool kids are going. Don’t miss this anticipated event!

Here’s a clip of them from a few weeks back.

The Electric Seisiun

Clear your schedules, The Electric Seisiun is coming to town this Friday!

We’ll be setting up the L1’s in John Stone’s for an evening of fun music. Come on out, grab some dinner, have a couple of Perfect Pints, and enjoy some of the finest traditional music outside of Boston. We will be looking forward to seeing you there. It will be a special night at John Stone’s!

St. Pat’s Concert at Framingham State

Last year myself and my friends from John Stone’s, affectionately referred to as the Stoners, played a concert at Framingham State College. We will be playing there again tomorrow afternoon (March 11th). Here is our setlist, or at least the beginnings of one.

Alright, admittedly it is kind of small. I can’t give away all the details. But I can tell you that we will be playing from 1:30 to 2:30 at the Ecumenical and Cultural Center, which is a big stone church. You can find a map of the campus here.

Also, we will be playing a session at John Stone’s on Saturday, March 14th starting at 7:30pm. As much as I enjoy the Framingham State gig, I enjoy the session more. They don’t usually serve pints at the church.

Dan Firehouse

Ok, new venue. Dan’s firehouse. Mariner rehearsal for our 50th anniversary.

I like Dan’s house because he has cool things like this giant metal Ancient Mariner logo in his bathroom…and…he lives in a firehouse.
