Music on Market

Location:

County-Wide

Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music
Organization: Music on Market
Description: Burning Bridget Cleary

Band-leader, Rose Baldino, drives this band with an unusual combination of charisma, crackerjack fiddle work, and tightly woven harmonies. The front of the band is shared with some of the best Celtic fiddle talent on the East Coast. Currently featured is Amy Beshara, a multi-talented fiddler/vocalist, from the NYC Scottish music scene. A driving rhythm and bass end is supplied by Lou Baldino on guitar and Peter Trezzi on percussion. Known for their captivating sound and engaging stage presence, Burning Bridget Cleary has achieved a solid presence on both the Celtic and folk music circuits.

The foursome has earned a reputation for presenting high-spirited Celtic music at festivals, concerts, and music series all over the U.S., including two tours to Ireland. While in Ireland, the band had a unique opportunity to visit the rural County Tipperary cottage of their namesake, Bridget Cleary, who is remembered as "the last witch burned in Ireland".

Burning Bridget Cleary has been performing and recording their distinctive style of Celtic traditional music since 2006.
The band broke new ground in 2013 when their fourth CD, “Pressed for Time,” hit #1 on the Roots Music Folk and Roots Charts, and finished the year as one of the Folk DJ’s most played albums. Their second release, “Everything is Alright”, was awarded “2009 Album of the Year” by CelticRadio.net in Boston.

“These Are the Days”, the fifth full-length album by Burning Bridget Cleary, was the #1 Album on the January 2016 Folk-DJ Charts. They were joined in this project by guest artists, Brian Buchanan of Enter the Haggis, accordion-master John McGillian, and Portherhead, a young trad band from Galway.

BBC’s music is featured on hundreds of radio programs worldwide, including syndicated programs, Thistle and Shamrock, FolkScene, SingOut Radio, and The Midnight Special.

Burning Bridget Cleary was included in Marc Gunn’s “Top 20” International Celtic bands for 2014.
