Failte, Celtic, The Shepherd’s Crook, Friday, Dec 7 at 8 pm

failteThe Shepherd’s Crook presents:

Failte originated from a casual collection of musicians in the autumn of 1991 in Waterloo. Failte (pronounced “fall-cha”) means welcome in Irish. Currently the group consists of original member, Stephen Todd (vocals, bodhran, and tin whistle) as well as Jessica Weiler (fiddle, vocals), and Brian Crozier (guitar, vocals).

The band plays traditional Celtic music with a Canadian attitude. Set lists include slow airs, ballads, jigs and reels from Ireland, Scotland and Canada.

Highly Recommended – Bill Craig, Irish/Traditional, Shepherd’s Crook, Friday, Dec 14 @ 8 pm

You won’t want to miss the music and wit of  Bill Craig.

Bill was born and raised in Ireland, and lived in London in 1973. He moved to Toronto in 1974. He first performed as a vocalist for various Rock ‘n Roll bands in Ireland in 1967.

In 1969, Bill began playing guitar on stage and has stayed with it as his main instrument ever since. Throughout this period, he maintained an interest in the music of his native Ireland, and would occasionally confuse, and usually please, rock audiences with a solo voice guitar rendition. Bill fills The Crook with a wide variety of sounds and a larger than life personality that works well in the room.
