Subject: RE: Folk Music in New York City
My band, Sorcha Dorcha is playing on April 21, Friday at 8PM at the Fort, part of The Sidewalk Cafe, Avenune A on 6th street. There are other folk groups usually on the bill, we are playing for an hour, it is usually a sort of folk variety show, I understand, though I havent been there. We play traditional celtic music with a heavy emphasis on Irish music, and as I am Anglo Irish, with a lot of Yorkshire infulence on the family we do some Yorkshire music as well. I also write ballads on modern concerns in the tradition of baladry I inherited from my dad, so we have songs about the forced assimilation of Canadian Indians, the murder of Gypsies in the Czech republic, the murder by NYC police of Amadou Diallo. I think you will enjoy the band...
Enjoy your visit, say hi if you make the gig,
