Gypsy Reel

 

Saturday, June 10 at 7:30pm

A Celtic band that rocks, Gypsy Reel plays high energy, stirring music rooted in the Celtic tradition but garnered from the whole world. They have “bags of originality” (Andy Cheyne, Folk Roots) and according to The Message in Chester, Vermont, are “the hottest acoustic band around.” We welcome them back for your last chance to see the full five-piece lineup before bassist, Silas Hamilton, heads off to Europe to live the traveling gypsy life.

The band's seven recordings feature music from the tradition as well as original material from the band.  At Brandon Music they will  perform an eclectic mix of new and old material from their long career. The common theme, as usual, will be 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; Reagh Greenleaf, formerly with the famous Clancys, on bodhran and vocals; and the young prodigy Silas Hamilton on standup bass.

Their concert and festival tours throughout the U.S., Canada and the UK have gained them rave reviews: “Ended the set in a frenzy”; “Gypsy Reel rocks stage at Charleston Spoleto Festival”. Other festival appearances have included the Lunenberg Festival in Nova Scotia, Champlain Valley Festival, Vermont, the Mean Fiddler and Fylde festivals in the UK, and the New World Festival in Vermont.

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 say “Don't miss this chance to hear these great musicians in a rare acoustic setting.” And Brandon Music is a ‘rare acoustic setting'.
