Just as watery mist remakes the world and whisky remakes the man, Angus Mohr revitalizes traditional Celtic music’s brogue with an American blues accent while rejuvenating rock ‘n roll’s broad spectrum with bagpipes and pennywhistles. No one is ever going to mistake Angus Mohr for a cover band. Sure, they play songs like “Foggy Dew”, the 1916 Easter Rising ballad, and “Whiskey in the Jar”, a sixteenth century tale of love and betrayal, and their set list is peppered with songs penned by Dylan, Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, and the Ramones. But you’ve never heard “Ring of Fire” or “I wanna Be Sedated” until you’ve heard it with the pipes’ spiraling keen.

Beth Gadbaw and Margot Krimmel
have performed together throughout the U.S., the U.K, and Ireland. Recently featured on Colorado Public Radio, their newest release Icy December was described by The Folk Harp Journal as “a wonderful compilation…that will make you feel nostalgic and warm” and by British folk magazine What’s Afoot as “an absolute joy to listen to.” All-Ireland harp champion Sylvia Woods said, “This is my favorite harp and vocal CD.”
“Musical treatment…combined with solid harmonies…that veer from the beaten path and hint at ancient Irish roots.” -Westword
“Introspective moods… spirited cadences… joyous inflection with just the right blend of youth and maturity.”- Off-Center Views
“Lush harmonies, spellbinding rhythms, with lithe interplay between harp and percussion.”- The Broomfield Enterprise
“Stunning.”- Colorado Public Radio
