Join Ulster Landing for a rousing evening of Celtic tunes. Toe-tapping Irish reels and jigs, soulful Scottish waltzes, "crooked" tunes from Cornwall and Quebec, hypnotic Breton dances, and more. You'll hear songs about rebellion, love lost and won, and a few stories along the way. We'll raise a glass and toast your health—Sláinte!
Ulster Landing is a Boston-based band focused on traditional music of the Celtic nations including Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall and Brittany. Their shows feature folk tunes and spirited songs performed on fiddle, uilleann pipes, harp, bouzouki, and voices. The group's name is a reference to the Irish province of Ulster, where Scottish and English settlers landed in the 17th century. Ulster Landing appears across New England at folk festivals, coffeehouses and numerous private events, and 2015 they were delighted to open for British folk rock icons Steeleye Span. www.ulsterlanding.com
