Take Down The Door
with special guest Honeytree
Rogers Hall, 4th and High Street, Lyons CO
8pm showtime, doors 7pm
The Irish once were known to take the doors off the hinges when it was time for a party. Now inspiring the modern Celtic world to do the same is Take Down the Door, a new trad band from Lyons and Boulder Colorado. The band's foot-stomping, heart-stopping, wide-open sound reflects both the band's name and its natural habitat. Fiddler Jessie Burnstoured for six years and recorded three number one world albums with Celtic supergroup Gaelic Storm. The music of Adam Agee and Jon Sousa has been called "sincere and from the heart" by top traditional fiddler Martin Hayes. Described by Irish Music Magazine as "exceptional," singer Beth Leachman Gadbaw made her mark as singer for acclaimed traditional group Siucra. Eric Thorin, the folk world's busiest bassist, currently tours with Matt Flinner Trio, Mollie O'Brien and Rich Moore, and with Jeff Austin Band. With nothing but stellar musicianship from all five of its members, Take Down the Door takes the stage with a variety of dance tunes and songs from Ireland and her diaspora. With an impressively high-energy traditional sound that is guaranteed to make you want to join in the fun, Take Down the Door is ready to get the party started.
Opening our evening is Honeytree - a soulful collaboration between Monocle Band's Monica Whittington and Eric Wiggs. Their sound is fresh, nuanced and absolutely delightful! The duo focuses on the artists and songs that have shaped them as musicians, and each artist brings new repertoire to the table.
