Celtic Crossroads June 25: Original and Traditional Music

Celtic Crossroads will probably be my last performance in Southern California until the end of the year,” says Colin Clyne of the June 25 event at Oceanside’s Sunshine Brooks Theatre.

Celtic Crossroads, will feature three San Diego based, Celtic influenced musicians; female fiddler Patric Petrie (of Skelpin), singer-songwriter Colin Clyne, and multi-instrumentalist David Lally.

"The title is a suggestion of all our 'celticness' and how they intertwine and cross paths," says Clyne, "or something to that effect."

Plans are for Petrie, Clyne, and Lally to perform separately and together, with Clyne backed by his band as well. In addition they’ll be joined by Irish dancers and special guests.

Says Clyne, "The format will be a showcase of our own individual styles combined with some collaborations between each artist and some special guests. Members of my band, including James Hood on lead guitar and Scottish percussionist John McCallum will join me on stage to perform songs from my Internationally acclaimed album Doricana. Quite possibly a few Scottish favorites will be thrown into the Celtic cauldron and we'll see how it tastes!"

The show will feature contemporary, original and traditional music. “I really wanted to showcase how the three of us come from widely differing backgrounds,” says Petrie. “David and I from Ireland, and Colin [is] from Scotland. We're all soloists in our own right, yet when we get together there's a common lyrical thread that runs through and links our music.”

Petrie notes that each performer will continue their own solo careers, but hopes the trio is able to take Celtic Crossroads on the road. “It's been a bit of a challenge to coordinate this show -right up there with cat-herding,” Petrie said. “Only because everyone's constantly traveling. In the past few months, the group’s members have racked up frequent flyer miles ranging from Norway, to Toronto, to India. “

Fiddler/singer Patric Petrie co-founded Skelpin with multi-instrumentalist Tim Foley. The Irish folk group fuses Celtic music and Spanish flamenco, earning them nominations for San Diego Music Awards (World Music category) in 2003, 2004, and 2005. The band's 2009 album A Trip to Skye (Blindspot Records) was produced by Alan Sanderson (Stones/Weezer) at Studio West and features guest player Matt Hensley, of Flogging Molly. One song from the album, "The View" (written by Tim Foley), won the World Music category in the 2009 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. The album itself won Best World Music album at the 2010 San Diego Music Awards.

Celtic multi-instrumentalist David Lally plays a combination of folk and electronica that he terms Folktronic. Born in Co. Galway, Ireland, he moved to the U.S .in 1995. Four years later, he met fellow Galway man, Ned Giblin, in Carlsbad. Their band Brehon Law has played hundreds of gigs, with an album called Live at Tom Giblin’s recorded in 2001. Lally released his debut album Often One in 2005.

Originally from Stonehaven, Scotland, and raised in the U.K., Colin Clyne says “My songs tell honest folk-like stories with hard, raw, bluesy rock guitar. The music is tinged with humor, sadness, and working-class bravado, all rolled into one little Britpop package. Imagine the love child of Mike Myers’s Fat Bastard and Neil Young.” Playing shows in both solo and band mode, Clyne has become a seasoned road vet, impressing crowds at venues ranging from Hollywood’s infamous Viper Room, to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, San Diego’s House of Blues, to Scotland’s Tartan Heart Festival and all manner of stages in between. Sponsored by Timberline Guitars, with a hand built model for touring, Clyne has also been a regular on European radio with numerous appearances, including Northsound Radio Aberdeen, Radio Norwich and Leith FM.

Tickets are currently priced at $15. http://www.nvtheatre.com/Tickets.htm
