Traditional Songs & Dance Music of Ireland

The inimitable Irish way with jigs, reels, songs, old New England waltzes, polkas, a barndance, and slides – magic on an early-August afternoon! Having thrice appeared for Music Matters as a trio, The Press Gang return a fourth time, having cheerfully evolved into a quartet. They bring a stylish, gorgeously played meld of traditional New World and Old Country Irish tunes. Come hear them awake this vibrant heritage to lilting, tuneful life.
