Pendragon - Celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
New England has long had a rich tradition of Celtic-inspired music. For 33 years, Pendragon has embraced that tradition and created a timeless sound of its own, performing roots music with an unmistakable contemporary edge. Pendragon is award-winning step dancer and percussionist Kevin Doyle, Bob Drouin on fiddle, bouzouki and tenor banjo, Russell Gusetti on guitar and concertina, Josh Kane on flute and whistles, and vocalist Mary Lee Partington. They will be joined tonight by guest step dancer Erika Damiani and All-Ireland uileann piper Torrin Ryan. Pendragon's music celebrates the lives and lore of generations of New Englanders who brought traditions from Ireland, Scotland, French Canada and other distant shores to the banks of the Blackstone River. The band performs their original songs and dance tunes on an exciting combination of fiddle, flute, bouzouki, concertina, banjo, guitar, whistle, and percussion. In performance, Pendragon elaborates on the cultural and historical context of their music while projecting a relaxed and humorous stage presence. Pendragon has been voted Rhode Island's Best Celtic Act nine times in the Motif Magazine's Best Music Awards. The band released a 30th Anniversary CD, "Live at Blackstone River Theatre" in 2014.
