The quintet first came together in the summer of 2008 united by the vision of offering a cutting edge interpretation of Celtic music. Combining traditional elements with an exhilarating contemporary approach, Rant Maggie Rant delivers an exotic blend of new and old, seamlessly bridging genres and serving up a modern Celtic aesthetic.
Rant Maggie Rant play ‘jigs’ from Ireland, Breton ‘an dros’, Scottish ‘marches’ and Galicien ‘munieras’ with revved up tempos and astounding time changes. And just when you thought you've heard it all, they pull out a killer blues-infused Appalachian-style groove or high octane reel to raise the rafters and bend the moorings.
Don't miss this astonishingly talented fivesome as they prepare you for the coming cold winter with a hot show you won't soon forget!
