Claddagh takes it's motto
seriously--it is Irish music played vigorously! From the
band's earliest days in November 2004, they have made their mark
with toe-tapping, hand-clapping, "gotta get up and dance"
renditions of traditional and original tunes.
The tunes may be traditional, but the arrangements you'll hear
will be nothing like you've ever heard before. The band may
bring in an African udu or djembe, or a Russian balalaika and
bring a whole new feeling to a familiar song. With 15
instruments to choose from, there's never a dull moment.
Dave Naples' originals will make you wonder if you are in
Ireland, or the mountains of North Carolina, as you are carried
away on the melodies. The band incorporates a variety of dances--jigs, polkas, waltzes--along with modern Celtic classics,
vocals, and few specialty pieces for good measure, and covers
the range from rockin' out vigor to more soulful tunes that
could bring a tear to your eye.
