Hamilton-based celtic folksters Poor Angus are bringing their infectious blend of Scots, Irish and East Coast music to the Fergus Grand Theatre on Friday May 22. Opening the show will be local favourites, Poverty’s Arse, known for their vast array of tunes and infectious East Coast style.
Poor Angus have built a great reputation for the re-interpretation of Scottish, Irish and East Coast traditional tunes in a thoroughly original way alongside some really strong self-written material; creating music that appeals to both the traditional purist and the modern celtic music fan. The combination of Scots, Irish and East Coast music styles ensures that no one leaves a Poor Angus show without a smile on their face and a song in their heart. Their most recent album, “The Gathering” was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in 2014, in the category of “Traditional Album of the Year”. Poor Angus are Andrew Bryan (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) Brian LeBlanc (Bodhran, guitar, mandolin, vocals), DJ Moons (bass), Joel Guenther (vocals, guitar) and Ross Griffiths (pipes, whistles, flute).
