Sligo Rags

 Sligo Rags is returning to open our 2015-2016 season at Música Del Río.

Celtic folk music with a decidedly bluegrass attitude, may be the best explanation for our favorite Irish band from the lowlands of south California.  Sligo Rags is regularly listed among the top acoustic bands in LA by Folkworks Magazine and two-time winner of the Orange County Music Award for Best Folk Band.

"Sligo Rags have mastered the ability to take songs from a time gone by and make them fresh and relevant for a modern audience. Their passion for the music and their willingness to take risks combine for an outstanding live show."--Music Connection

In our travels throughout the west, Sligo Rags is one of the most often talked about groups with a truly unique blend of eclectic musical influences.  Celtic Beat Magazine referred to their debut studio recording, The Night Before the Morning After, as "the best we've heard from a stateside band".  Folkworks, named their second release The Whiskey Never Lies, one of the top 10 of 2007.

Do not be surprised if elements of country, gypsy jazz and swing manage to sneak their way into the act as well. Award-winning flat-picking and finger style guitarist David Burns, fiddler extraordinaire Michael Kelly, highly versatile bassist Eli Marcus, and percussion whiz-kid Jonathan Baer are guaranteed to fill the room and your lives with electricity. They may give you a good laugh or two along the way as well.

So we will lock up the whiskey to make sure everyone (including the band) is awake as Sligo Rags kicks off the first concert of our new season at Música Del Río.
