"The most exhilaratingly original Celtic band to emerge in America."

- The Boston Globe

Join us on January 13 as we send Whirligig off in style. Since 1994 Whirligig has combined a firm grounding in a wide variety of folk forms with a rich palette of contemporary music influences. Their sound blends jazz, rock, and other world music, to create a "Celtic/world/jazz fusion feast of the sort that only New York City could produce." (RTE Ireland) Led by multi-instrumentalist Greg Anderson and fiddler extraordinaire Lisa Gutkin, the band features Matt Darriau's multi-reeds and flutes, Ivan Goff's uilleann pipes and whistles, and the voice and guitar of Lisa Moscatiello. Whirligig has appeared at many of the largest and most prestigious festivals throughout North America, including Winnipeg, Newport, Philadelphia, and Toronto's Rhythms of the World. Their latest CD, "Spin," made the Top 10 lists of many DJs and publications throughout the US and England. Whirligig packed the house last time, so be sure to get your tickets in advance.
