Dun Creagan (USA)
DunCreagan plays Irish and Scottish traditional music, with creative arrangements of old and new songs and tunes in the tradition, many composed by founding member Rick Gagné.
Prize-winning singer, Tom McKean, brings ballads and songs from Scotland in Scots and Gaelic, told with the plain-speaking drama and exquisite language of true traditional song. Tunes are driven by the fiddle and accordion of Sarah Collins and Carrick Eggleston, interweaving dynamic melodies with countermelody and delicate harmony. All this is underpinned by the swaggering melodic guitar of Kelley Bishop, lifting the rhythms and augmenting the melodies to their best advantage.
DunCreagan are Sarah Collins fiddle, Kelley Bishop guitar, mandolin, and vocals, Carrick Eggleston accordion, and Tom McKean vocals, bouzouki, and bodhrán, playing in memory of dear friend, Rick Gagné.
