Hi all. Hope you are all well.
You can pick up our latest cd "Dancing Mad in the Midnight
Steeped in the Living Tradition
Finvarra's Wren is one of North America's most exciting
Irish quartets. "Making
the kind of music you'd only hear on the west coast of Ireland", this
Detroit, Michigan based band has an intense dedication to their instruments
and to Irish music. As a family based group, Finvarra's Wren is capable
of playing with a tightness and effortlessness that often evades other
ensembles. Their performances have been described as "a swirl of
musical tradition and performance energy". Finvarra's Wren has performed
at many of North America's top music festivals and venues including
the Austin Texas Celtic Festival, Dayton Ohio Celtic Festival, Kennedy
Center, Washington DC, Goderich Ontario Celtic Festival, Saline
MI Celtic Fest, Baltimore Maryland Irish Fest, Celtic Fest Mississippi
and Ann Arbor's prestigious Ark where they recently recorded their live
album, "Dancing Mad in the Midnight Air".
Mississippi Celtic Festival Director Don Penzien says: "Finvarra’s Wren unequivocally ranks in topmost echelon of American bands performing Irish traditional music today. With expert musicianship from every quarter, the band’s imaginative interpretations of tunes and songs are wholly true to the Irish tradition."
