Celtic music reigns at Brandon Music Saturday

A Celtic band that rocks, Gypsy Reel plays high energy, stirring music rooted in the Celtic tradition but garnered from the whole world. Members of the quintet have “bags of originality” (so says Andy Cheyne of Folk Roots) and according to The Message in Chester, Vt., are “the hottest acoustic band around.” Gypsy Reel will perform at Brandon Music this Saturday, June 30. It will be the group’s fourth show here and they love the venue and acoustics so much that they recorded their last show. The resulting CD — “Gypsy Reel Live 2017” — will be on sale at Saturday’s show.
Their nine recordings feature music from the tradition and original material from the band. The common theme is their joyous approach to music and the fun they share with the audience during live performances.
Gypsy Reel’s lineup includes hot banjoist, guitarist and vocalist Claudine Langille, formerly of Touchstone, the sensational Irish/American fusion band that won critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic; Graham Parker, eclectic fiddler extraordinaire; Camille Parker who has captivated the hearts of audiences across the globe with her mandolin, bodhran and vocals; and the young prodigy Silas Hamilton on standup bass and guitar.
Higher Ground Music says “Gypsy Reel have been perfecting their eclectic blend of Celtic and original music for over 20 years all over the world.” They add “Don’t miss this chance to hear these great entertainers”!
Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Show $20. Dinner and show $45. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.
