Weeks 2 & 3 / Good Knight Pub Stage
Ceili (kay-lee) – A gathering of friends to celebrate with music, dance, and fun!
Carolina Ceili brings a Southern Appalachian flavor to traditional Irish music, creating a lively stage show that is equal parts danceable, enlightening, and transcendent. Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina, and Atlanta, Georgia, the acoustic quartet combines rollicking traditional jigs and reels with gorgeous three-part harmonies and story-songs, and are equally at home in a pub, a concert hall or a festival stage.
Laurie Fisher on fiddle is a seasoned veteran of Asheville’s contra-dancing scene as well as a dance caller and avid student of ancient tales.
Maggie Anderson our vocalist and drummer, has a background in theatre and opera and various pop/rock bands.
Marcos Harkness performing on Guitar and Mandolin was born in the Republic of Panama and brings a fiery Latin-American influence to his playing and singing, along with a love of story songs.
Jim Kirkland the newest member of the band, comes armed with a rack of tin whistles and flutes and a skilled, nimble approach to melody informed by his love of jazz.
