Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Carnival of Souls

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Carnival of Souls

For more than 10 years, Allegheny RiverStone Center for Arts audiences have packed the
house to experience a joyous evening of superb Irish and Celtic music with the very
talented Carnival of Souls. Get a head start on your St. Patrick’s Day celebration with this
energetic ensemble on Saturday, March 16 at 7:30 PM in Foxburg’s Lincoln Hall!
Leprechaun magic will abound with the call of the highland bagpipes and all those lucky
enough to be Irish – and all those hopefuls who wish they were Irish – will tap their toes
and kick up their heels celebrating St. Paddy as Carnival of Souls performs stirring vocals,
reels and jigs on highland bagpipes, bodhrán, guitar, flute, tin whistle, accordion and
keyboards.
Tickets are Adults $20, Students $5 and Children under 6 free. Buy online at
alleghenyriverstone.org or call 724-659-3153 to reserve and pay with cash or check at the
door.
CARNIVAL OF SOULS has been performing traditional and original Celtic music in Western
Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and West Virginia for over twenty years. The group employs a
wide variety of traditional and non-traditional instruments to produce a rich range of
music that would be at home in a pub in Dublin, Galway, Limerick or Cork!
You can listen to their music from their CD No Scone Unburned – “Forty-two Pound Checque
and Wind that shakes the Barley” – and more samples of No Scone Unburned and their
second CD, SconeHenge, through CD Baby.
Their musicianship has been hailed as creative and with tight arrangements in reviews of
their CD – “No Scone Unburned”:
Dirty Linen“… it’s when the band gets creative that their sound gets most interesting. There
are dreamy arrangements of “Lagan Love” and “She Moves Through the Fair” with echoing
keyboards and rainsticks, a version of “Bogie’s Bonnie Bell” with a rhythmic variation that
turns it into a sad calypso, and a rocking hammered dulcimer reel set.”
The Pittsburgh Tribune/Review “…Arrangements are tight, and the songs bristle with tin-
whistles, accordion and galloping bodhran, an Irish drum.  The band proves equally adept
at pint glass-rattling rave-ups such as “Allistrum’s March” and the lush, languid American
Indian ballad “Shenandoah.”
As they say in Ireland, “Give it a lash”, which roughly translates to “Give it a go”, and enjoy
this old Irish St. Paddy’s Day blessing with Carnival of Souls!: “May the Irish hills caress you,
May her lakes and rivers bless you, May the luck of the Irish enfold you, May the blessings
of St. Patrick behold you!” Erin go Braugh!
