What a lovely way to be a Craicmore fan! An MP3. When will you be back at the Redlands Bowl (92373) again? Loved the digeridoo.

Q

If ıt's the same man who follow the tweets he/she will remember me from twitter (the one enjoys bagpipe sound and celtic music) I want to learn about your concerts; have ever come to Turkey or will u?

Craicmore would LOVE to come to Turkey! I've been fascinated by the people, music and culture for many years. It would be great to find some new instruments to work into our sound and to meet you and some of the great musicians who live there. If you have any ideas on how we might be able to organize a tour in your country or region, please let me know!
May you and your family be well, please keep in touch.

St. Patrick's Day in the Fowler Center, Jonesboro, AK on the campus of Arkansas St U. It's going to be our first show in Arkansas and you can bet we're going to have one h*ll of a good time! Grab some friends, much fun will be had by all...

Q

Some of the instruments you play are unfamiliar to me...would you explain some of those odd-looking music makers?

From program notes 4 Craicmore Orchestral Performances:The musicians who comprise the Craicmore ensemble see themselves as another link in the chain of the Celtic musical tradition. They have adapted traditional tunes in a way that epitomizes our twenty-first century global culture. Their arrangements of traditional melodies incorporate the classical symphony orchestra, the electronic “bass” guitar and instruments from cultures as diverse as those of India and Australia: the Shruti box and the Didgeridoo respectively.

The Irish Uilleann, and Scottish bagpipes provide both drone and melody in the Gaelic music tradition. Not surprisingly, drones and drone-like instruments have been a part of musical cultures worldwide since ancient times. Instruments like the Didgeridoo, a long end-blown pipe from the indiginous societies of Australia, and the Shruti Box, a bellows instrument from the classical music tradition of India, naturally compliment the musical sensibilities of Craicmore

Q

Do you guys ever play in LA!?


Craicmore responded on 08/16/2010
A

Most of our touring takes us out of state, though the band is actually based in Los Angeles.
We'll be sure to let you know when we have a show anywhere around Southern CA. It does happen... Thanks for joining the fanlist!!
