Tir Na N’og brings Celtic spirit to Wolf’s Den

E-mail Print PDF
I  caught the end of the Lethbridge’s Folk Club’s Saturday night (April 10) presentation of Calgary Celtic band Tir Na N’og at the Wolf’s Den where a good sized crowd was enjoying outstanding musicianship on a variety of instruments.Tir na N’og wind down their set at the Wolf’s Den, April 10.

 I arrived in the middle of a touching version of Dolly Parton’s classic “Jolene” which featured some excellent mandolin playing from Brian Volke who shared lead vocals with Christie Simmons, who  showed her prowess on a variety of instruments including alternating between two sets of pipes during one song called Ronnie McCorkle. Colin Peters added some tasteful fiddle throughout. They also added some superb vocal harmonies.
 They ended with a laid back version of ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’  on which they tried to get the audience singing with them, and were called back for an upbeat encore of a song about whaling which gave them a chance to show off some superb vocal harmonies and more piping.
