Skean Dubh Brings Diverse Repertoire to Longmont
Celtic band’s concert at the Library just in time for St. Patrick’s Day
Skean Dubh is arguably one of the most enjoyable Celtic/Acoustic bands in the Rocky Mountain region, and they’re bringing their unique sound to Longmont with a concert on Thursday, March 12, from 7 to 8 pm at the Library.
Skean Dubh’s diverse repertoire spans centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, Scottish ballads, Irish pub-songs, Celtic folksongs, and gorgeous slow airs. Their music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people. These versatile musicians have received accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances. They have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and extremely musical vocals that make their performances unforgettable. The music may be Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to full on rock.
Skean Dubh have continually delighted audiences both with their musical styling and with their unusual instrumentation (a unique blend of traditional and modern instruments) including: Uilleann, (Irish) bagpipes, fiddle, guitar, banjo, bouzouki, whistles, mandolin, bodhran, and accordion.
