Get in the mood for St. Paddy's Day with some craic and ceol! (That's Gaelic for fun and music.) From re-imagined traditional Celtic folk music to acoustic covers of alternative Irish rock, the mellifluous story-telling/singing of Jocelyn A. Brown and her fellow musicians create arrangements as ethereal as Celtic Woman and vocally arresting as The Cranberries...while tossing in a wee bit of a pub's Flogging Molly. A great gathering of veteran Chance artists, you won't want to miss Jocelyn A. Brown's vocals, Aimee Gomez on fiddle, David McCormick on guitar, Bill Strongin on piano, Scott Well on percussion, and several special guests: Laura Hathaway, Kayla Pajarito, and Mika Honda.
