Sligo Rags Back On May 16th.

By Gary Trobridge, 2015-05-08

The Living Tradition Concert Series proudly presents SLIGO RAGS in concert on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 7:30 PM.

Sligo Rags, named among the top acoustic bands in LA (by Folkworks Magazine) and two-time winners of the Orange County Music Award for Best Folk Band, is a dynamic ensemble presenting Celtic Folk with a decidedly bluegrass attitude. And they have taken the Folk and Celtic music scenes by storm. 

Their debut studio recording, "The Night Before the Morning After", was called "the best I've heard from a stateside band" by Celtic Beat Magazine, while their sophomore effort, “The Whiskey Never Lies,” was called “the best from the West Coast Celts in many years” by Shay Clark of the Irish-American News.

Elements of country, gypsy jazz and swing may manage to sneak their way into the act as well. Sligo Rags is guaranteed to fill the room and your lives with electricity – and they may give you a good laugh or two along the way as well. (www.sligorags.com)EndFragment
