Saturday, March 1 is the first day of Irish-American Heritage Month AND the weekend before Fat Tuesday. Creative Cauldron and the Folklore Society of Greater Washington have joined forces so that you can celebrate two great cultural traditions in one fabulous party! Come in good voice and sing along with the Ocean Quartet on the choruses of songs both Irish and French. Wear your favorite Mardi Gras mask (we’ll supply the beads), and/or your St. Paddy’s Day green. When these two great cultures collide, we’ll let the good times roll!
The Washington Post calls Ocean, “Nothing short of spellbinding;” and the band is this year’s nominee for the Washington Area Music Association’s “WAMMIE” award in the Traditional Folk Group Category. Ocean’s enthralling performances and unusual repertoire are at the heart of this enchantment. Composer and ethnomusicologist Jennifer Cutting, (accordions, piano, artistic director), explores the Library of Congress’s Folk Archive to find rare ballads and tunes, giving them shimmering new musical life. Lisa Moscatiello, (voice, guitar, pennywhistle), has a voice that Billboard magazine has called "one of the most gorgeous vocal instruments in all of folk-tinged pop." Andrew Dodds is an award-winning Scottish fiddler. Steve Winick, (voice, percussion), boasts an earthy baritone, powerful delivery and an inexhaustible supply of riveting ballads and stories.
