Drank the Gold with the Grady Girls

From Upstate New York, Oona Grady (fiddle/viola) and James Gascoyne (guitar/vocals) play and sing North Atlantic dance tunes and folk songs.  Steeped in Irish music for as far back as she can remember, Oona spent many years living in Cork, Ireland, where she honed her skills as a fiddle player and Irish music specialist.  Upon moving back to her home town of Ithaca, NY, she immersed herself in the local traditional music scene and incorporated old time and Cajun tunes into her repertoire.  Not steeped in Irish music, or any traditional music (as far as he can tell), James draws on his eclectic musical background in experimental music, rock, and jazz to create a fresh and exciting approach to dance tune accompaniment.  For his vocal repertoire he chooses folk songs that express universal and intangible feelings of love and longing.  Now based in Saratoga Springs, NY, Oona and James collaborate as Drank The Gold, bringing new perspectives and innovative arrangements to the music that they love. They will be joined by special guests the Grady Girls for this show.Craic agus ceol (good times and music)!
