THE BRIAN PICKELL BAND
Pulled together by the magnetic, globe-trotting compositions of Brian Pickell (presented with the “Tradition Bearer Award” at the 2012 Goderich Celtic Roots Festival) and a love of traditional music, the group is both stunningly musical and energizing. The band combines the talents of Shane Cook (presented with the “Young Tradition Award” at the 2012 Goderich Celtic Roots Festival), multiple winner of the Canadian Open and Grand Masters Fiddle Contests and the American Grand National; revered Ottawa multi-instrumentalist James Stephens on fiddle, mandolin, bass and viola; and Pat O’Gorman, an admired mainstay of the Canadian music scene, on flute, whistles and pipes. Julie Schryer is widely considered to be one of the finest piano accompanists in Canada, and Brian is an accomplished composer, guitarist, and banjo and mandolin player. Together, they are a musical force of nature.
The band will start with a one-hour concert followed by square dancing, contra dancing, and dancing like no one is watching.
