A Celtic Celebration featuring The Bookends in performance with the Stratford Symphony Orchestra. The Bookends are Celtic instrumentalists from Stratford, Ontario, whose members have performed with Great Big Sea, Loreena McKennitt, Ashley MacIssac, The Tragically Hip, Johnny Winter and George Thorogood. They keep audiences of all ages spellbound and fast-footed with their masterful arrangements. Filled with good natured banter, fascinating footnotes and a steady switching of instruments,they deliver a show of energetic enrichment,and fantastically frenzied fun. Building on a library of traditional Irish and Scottish gems,they draw on rock & roll,classical, world,and folk music to hone their own sound and pen their own compositions–with arrangements that compel even the hardest of metalheads to dance jigs.
This concert recorded live at The Avondale, in Stratford, has also been released on CD, available at the link below
