July 13, 2017 – Irish Folk & Celtic Rock
The Adam Agee Duo (7 pm – 7:35 pm)
Adam Agee and Jon Sousa are two of Colorado’s most sought-after traditional Irish musicians. They have been journeying together through the Irish idiom on fiddle, guitar, and tenor banjo, enchanting listeners on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, for over 13 years. Adam and Jon have put down musical roots in County Clare, where they lived together, and now make frequent visits. Their connection to their instruments and the transcendent energy in their music captivates and uplifts audiences of all ages.
The Young Dubliners (7:45 pm – 9 pm)
The hardest working band in Celtic Rock are back at it! After a winter tour that started in Alaska, cruised to the Bahamas and then finished in Dublin, Ireland, the band find themselves in high demand around the US, playing dates all over the country. In recent years, they have appeared twice on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, had songs featured on TV shows like Sons Of Anarchy and Human Target, and toured extensively with a diverse list of artists including Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang and many more. Although the Young Dubliners sound is most commonly called ‘Celtic Rock’, that label can sometimes be a little misleading as their Irish influences aren’t the only ones that appear in their music. Their sound is, and always was, intended to be a hybrid from many different backgrounds. Drawing from all nine of their albums makes for an interesting set list every night and keeps everyone on their toes.
The Blend Chorus! (5:30 – 7 pm)
The Blend Chorus is an extraordinary group of women who gather together in celebration of the a cappella art form known as barbershop music. They are a chapter of Sweet Adelines International, and they perform at community functions and events throughout the year.
