Excited to be presenting #Barrule – Irish American Heritage Center Sept. 18th! #manxmusic #isleofman


Salon Concerts Chicago presents exciting young Manx band, Barrule, in concert this September.

Barrule fuses three distinct musical forces; gifted fiddle player Tomas Callister, accordion wizard Jamie Smith and versatile accompanist Adam Rhodes on bouzouki. Together this versatile acoustic unit creates a powerful and wholly distinctive sound.

With bold but sensitive arrangements, the trio presents a fresh take on traditional and contemporary Manx music. While sharing common ground with its Celtic cousins and the English tradition, Manx music has retained its own particular and inherent Manxness: an atmosphere evoked by the music that speaks of the natural beauty of the island and the lives of its inhabitants. Barrule recently appeared at this year’s Celtic World Showcase at Milwaukee Irish Fest

The Performing Group from the Academy of Irish Music will open the concert.

The Barrule Salon Concert is Sunday, September 18 at 7pm in the Fifth Province. Tickets are $20 for adults and children 18 and under are free. To purchase tickets, visit http://irish-american.org/event/barrule-salon-concert/, call 773-282-7035, ext. 10 or buy at the door.
