Victoria-based Crikey Mor will bring its Celtic and ballad stylings to a house concert hosted by the Gardeners Green Folk Club in Merville May. 23.

Crikey! It’s a house concert

Gardeners Green Folk Club hosts Victoria-based quintet in Merville house concert event

Gardeners Green Folk Club in Merville invites all music fans to its latest house concert on May 23, featuring Victoria-based Crikey Mor.

These five top-notch musicians and singers have a great time playing together. Crikey Mor specialize in high-energy Irish music, but also very sweet and harmonic ballads and songs. The performers are Nancy Grossert on fiddle, Tasia MacKay on flute, Eric Reiswig on uilleann pipes, Jeremy Walsh on guitar, and Andrew Morris on bodhran. The quintet adds five fine voices, as well.

Given that this is a house concert, it will be a very intimate evening for all. You may find yourself ducking under the end of a fiddle bow or flute, or providing a knee for the bodhran or bagpipe to sit on, but that’s all part of the fun house concert ambience. It’s going to be very hard to pin you to your seats, but regrettably, the only dancing room will be in your chairs.

Needless to say, seating is limited. Crikey Mor already have a good following in the Valley, so tickets for this event are likely to go quickly.

Tickets are $20 ($10 for kids) and must be purchased in advance, with all of the proceeds going to the performers. Tickets include hot drinks and a good spread of finger food, and can be purchased by e-transfer, or you can arrange to come by and pick them up in person. Call 250-337-5337 for more info. Leave a clear message if we don’t answer (we’re outside!) and we’ll get back to you shortly.
