Plaid Menagerie / Bio

A contemporary take on Scottish and Irish folk music distilled into a right rant with awesome rhythmic drive. Fiddle, bagpipe, guitar and keyboard blend to present the music of the Celtic lands. Your wedding, party or corporate event will be a peak experience with our mood altering music.Sometimes when the Plaid Menagerie Celtic band plays, you feel like the whole room is swaying to the music. Imagine the dance music of your
Irish and Scottish ancestors channeled forward in time to be enjoyed by the audiences of today, music that transcends generations and time.The fiddler, Nanette Fynan, continues the tradition of hosts of fiddlers through the
ages. Bruce Maxwell’s Scottish smallpipe wails out the soulful melodies so characteristic of the Irish and Scottish
musical tradition. Inventive keyboard player, Ben Fynan, keeps everyone guessing what's coming next with his tasteful mix of traditional Celtic piano and contemporary rhythmic diversity. With Randall and Chase adding rhythm guitar and drums, the compelling rhythm will drive a dance like a locomotive.They make a tight group, playing old Irish pub standards as well as great tunes from the emerging artists of the Celtic music scene of Scotland,Ireland and Cape Breton. While their sound is unique, it can be compared to Molly’s Revenge, Blazin’ Fiddles, Banshee In the Kitchen
and The American Rogues.
