The Craic Show performs ‘Join the Fray’ at the 2018 Brevard Renaissance Fair in Melbourne, Florida. (2018-01-27)
From their Facebook page:
“The CRAIC Show is an intense & wildly entertaining act,
made up of four international travelers who, in 1541, were banded together on an ancient battlefield. This unique merging of music from far away lands brings a sound that is unlike any other.
Irishman Daniel O’Ryan leads this group with roguish vocals, rhythmic mandolin, and intense bagpipes. These pipes are paired up with enchanting Rina Von Adams playing harmonizing violin. The energy & enthusiasm of Cockney mate, Dylan Copperpot, on percussions is delightfully contagious. Anchoring the band with strong vocals & heavy bass drum is the Nordic beauty, Tonya Den Norse.
Watching the group switch and interchange instruments throughout the show is something to see, songs are often started on pipes and ended with the entire group on percussions.
Ever-changing and constantly blending styles, The CRAIC Show is always bringing a fresh, high energy blend of World Medieval Music.”
