The Alan Kelly Gang will be coming to Maine for three shows before moving on to the Boston area. They will be interviewed on the WCSH6 207 program on Monday, March 10.

Fronted by Ireland’s piano accordion maestro and with three of Ireland’s and Scotland’s finest musicians: Steph Geremia, Alasdair White and guitarist Tony Byrne. All critically acclaimed masters of their own craft, the Alan Kelly Gang sit firmly at the cutting edge of the traditional and world music scene.

Hailed by international critics for their consummate musicianship and powerful, emotive performance, they deliver a unique and diverse perspective to the Celtic repertoire, amalgamating a musical dialogue that spans the Celtic countries, but with Ireland sternly at its helm. With powerful instrumentals, haunting vocals, strong dynamics, driving rhythms and buoyant harmonies, their music will draw even the most fainthearted listener into the passion that they put into the music they play – magical, joyous and uplifting.

Curtain is 7 p.m. at all locations. A pre-show jam at Skye Theatre will start at 6:15 p.m. A public Saint Patrick’s Day supper will precede the concert in Phillips starting at 5 p.m.

Skye Theater is at 9 Highland Drive in South Carthage. Acoustic Artisans is at 594 Congress Street, Portland. Phillips ACC is at 21 Depot Street, Phillips.
