Combining their love for folk and traditional music, as well as original songs and tunes, the Paul McKenna Band from Scotland has been captivating audiences with live performances of their new album, titled “Stem the Tide.”

With a contemporary approach to songs, although not straying too far from their roots, their arrangements are both fresh and innovative. The exciting sound of the Paul McKenna Band is created through outstanding vocals, driving guitar and bouzouki, intense fiddle playing, a warm pairing of flute and whistles, and dynamic bodhrán and percussion.

Tickets are $15 at each venue except Deertrees which are $22. Contact information: Lakeside Theater, Main Street,; St. Lawrence Arts, 76 Congress Stree, 207-775-5568; Skye Theater, 2 Highland Drive, 207-562-4445; Deertrees Theatre, 156 Deertrees Road, 207-583-6747.
