A Musical Tour of Ireland

DifferentFolkNEW-1024x487Begin your enjoyment of St. Patrick’s Day 2016 just a little bit early this year. Travel with us around the Emerald Isle as Fredericton’s Traditional Celtic music group, “Different Folk”, along with other guest performers, take us on a musical journey of Ireland. From east to west, north to south, and everywhere in between, the sights, sounds, and Irish wit will have you singing along with old favourites, tapping your feet to lively tunes, and having a rollicking good time. Fiddle, bodhrán, guitar, voice and dance combine to lift your spirits and have you dreaming of Irish shores.

Different Folk: Will Toner (vocals and guitar), multiple Music NB award winner and ECMA nominee Katherine Moller (vocals and fiddle), Kim Moller (vocals and bodhran), and Don LeBlanc (bass). An upbeat group, they perform a mix of Celtic, maritime and folk-rock with a blend of beautiful vocal harmonies and lively fiddling.

Combining a melodious mix of Maritime music with contemporary arrangements of Celtic favorites, and then adding a generous helping of foot stomping fiddling; Different Folk is just what you need to get that kitchen party started! Tight vocal harmonies with a knack for having fun are a guarantee to liven any event, big or small. So come, join in and sing along. You too might find yourself to be one of the “Different Folk.”
