Soltrè: traditional Irish music with Americana influences and original interpretations, featuring rollicking reels and jigs, as well as heartfelt ballads. Expect to hear fiddles, whistles, flute, accordion, mandolin, guitar, bodhran and banjo. Musicians Sean Hoffmann, Rick Willey, Nolan Ladewski, Eric Fiechtner and Katie Montoya bring years of experience playing Irish and American folk.
An Dro is a union of four seasoned instrumentalists who speak from the heart with uncommon synergy. Their music is a blend of traditional and original melodies from across the globe, reaching back to the past, with an eye to the present and the future.
An Dro takes you on an adventure that is both personal and universal. You'll hear traditional Irish melodies, medieval French songs, Breton dance tunes, Scandinavian refrains, Appalachian influences, Arabic rhythms, and African grooves all performed with joy and freshness. This is dance music but it's also listening music.
The band's original works have a feel that is both ancient and modern with a dynamic range that takes you from crazy dance grooves to delicately orchestrated waltzes and airs to blazing improvisational assaults.
The band takes their name An Dro from a folk dance of Brittany where the dancers link fingers as they move in a spiral line dance. An Dro translates literally as "The Turn" and is an apt description of music that is alive and ever changing.
