Date: Friday 4 January 21:00 - 23:45


Friday, January 4, 2019, Irish music returns with one of the most fascinating groups in Tuscany, the Dirty Old Band, a unique group that will transport you in the lush and wonderful Ireland! The
their repertoire consists entirely of Irish, Scottish and English folk music; from the ballads that date back to the seventeenth century to more recent compositions such as Michael McGoldrick, the Old Blind Dogs, or the Italian Whiskey Trail. The folk of the British Isles have the extraordinary appearance of being kept alive over time, while constantly changing. Practicing this kind of music is never the re-evocation of a style of the past, but it means contributing to its evolution. That's why in their folk there are traces of rock, blues, reggae! The fiddle is accompanied by the bodhran, the traditional Irish drum, but also the congas, the plates and the djembe.
