Summer Solstice Tartan Ball!
June 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm$35
The Summer Solstice is almost here and we want to celebrate it with you! Whatever your ancestry or orientation, if you identify as Celtic or enjoy the company of those who do, you are invited for an evening of music and merriment. This is to be a celebration of culture, diversity, and expression, so polish up your brogues, don your regalia, or put on whatever you like and join us as we welcome in the Summer with the Tartan Ball!
Music throughout the night will be brought by Tiller’s Folly, Whiskeydicks, and Pat Chessell.
Tiller’s Folly is the Pacific Northwest’s critically acclaimed, internationally travelled acoustic power trio, planted at the forefront of a bold new movement in progressive roots music. A highly regarded Canadian Celtic group-turned-historians, this award-winning ensemble has shifted to what might be more aptly termed Acoustic Roots Music.
The Whiskeydicks are a group of Celtic Gypsy party rockers who have spent the better part of 16 years carving a reputation for themselves as “One Hell of a Good Time”. The Whiskeydicks use fiery celtic-gypsy fiddle licks, cello played like a bass, bombastic trumpet, vivacious drum beats, energetic guitar strumming, and voice to tell stories of good times past and to play songs people know but in a way they’d never imagine. The formula works and has earned the band acclaim from audiences everywhere.
Pat Chessell is a Vancouver based singer and guitar player who began his career as a teenager as a guest with Belfast singer Danny Burns of the legendary Irish group, The Wolfhound. Now in his early-thirties, Chessell has become known as one of the most exciting Celtic acts in Western Canada, playing the region’s top festivals, nightclubs, theatres, and special events. The singer and guitar player performs more than 200 shows a year, either solo or with The Pat Chessell Band.
