DUNCREAGAN

DunCreagan - Prague - square.jpg

DunCreagan, a band known for innovative renditions of traditional Irish and Scottish music, was one of the first musical acts to perform at Saco River Theatre twenty-eight years ago.  They recently announced their return to action after a six nation European tour, with sold out gigs Prague, Vienna, Ljubljana, Zagreb, and Florence.  The trio of Tom McKean (lead vocals, bodhrán, bouzouki), Carrick Eggleston (accordion), and Kelley Bishop (guitar, harmonicas), are joined again by the talented fiddler Sarah Collins, formerly of Chasing Redbird. Within DunCreagan’s new material, a fresh chemistry emerges as the accordion and fiddle roll seamlessly through jigs and reels, contrasting with the brooding, unpretentious quality of McKean’s voice and Bishop’s punctuated guitar style.
