Trio brings Irish music to Bristol
Daymark is an international trio performing traditional Irish music infused with infectious energy, raw power and Northern swagger. They’re coming to the WalkOver Gallery and Concert Room, 15 Main Street, in Bristol this Saturday, March 24, 8 p.m., to give an intimate performance for the Cabin Fever Series.
The trio fuses the talents of Will Woodson (flute, border pipes), Dan Foster (fiddle) and Eric McDonald (guitar, vocals) into a classic blend of wind and string. The driving flute meets a virtuosic fiddle, underpinned by well-considered and expertly delivered guitar.
Daymark presents audiences with the echos of Irish-American dance halls from the 1920s and ’30s, alongside the lonesome tones of Donegal country fiddlers and the rollicking smoky pubs of Northern England’s immigrant neighborhoods. Taken together, these influences merge into a music that is very much a part of the present; it’s a sound that’s urgent and wild — with a proper St. Patrick’s Day flare.
Tickets to Saturday’s concert are $15 in advance, or $20 day of show, and are available at Recycled Reading in Bristol or by calling (802) 453-3188, x 2.
