Irish Tunes with The Press Gang at Old Liberty

The Press Gang—a three-piece ensemble from Portland, Maine, that plays “Irish music in the new tradition”—will be singing and strumming their way onto the stage at the Old Liberty Theater this weekend. They’ll perform the instrumental dance music of Ireland on fiddle, accordion, and guitar. This year, the sought-after band is touring up and down the West Coast with Irish music phenomenon Hanz Araki.

These three musicians have become popular over the past four years for their skillful playing and deep understanding of the music—and for their relaxed, not-so-serious stage presence. As American performers in the Irish tradition, the Press Gang brings a unique perspective to the music. They intersperse their repertoire of Irish melodies with related folk tunes from Quebec, Scotland, and Appalachia, and some fine New England waltzes. They temper their arrangements with a musical sense of adventure, making each show spontaneous and fresh.

The Press Gang’s performance at the Old Liberty will be at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11. Doors open at 6:45 p.m., and all ages are welcome. Tickets are $15 per person, available at the door or in advance by calling 360-887-7260.
