This leg of our travels will take us on a musical journey from Calgary to the East Coast, and beyond. The ever popular Morrissey’s Private Stock will be back for a third go around. Filling out this ship’s entertainment roster are Erin’s Fancy and Get Reel.
The evening is at Hickey’s Place in a concert format (attentive audience) in an authentic pub style setting, with three acts, and the ICS bar. We’ll have some food on the menu to feed you as well (via A Certain Flair Catering). Cash and electronic payment options.
It will be another fantastic show. Previous concerts have sold out, so don’t wait to get your tickets – you’ve been warned. Tickets via the Eventbrite website or the secure embedded checkout at the bottom of the page.
Morrissey’s Private Stock
Most of these lads have been transplanted to Calgary, Alberta from the rugged shores of Newfoundland and Ireland where Celtic music, strong Irish history and traditions run in their blood.
- Steve Morrissey (Vocal/Guitar/Bodhran)
- Dave Morrissey (Vocal/Banjo/Guitar)
- Matt O’Leary (Accordion/Mandolin)
- Lenny Dalton (Vocal/Bodhran/Guitar)
- Fonz Hann (Mandolin/Guitar)
- Sandy Aberdeen (Bass/Whistles/Banjo)
Toe-tapping tunes to keep ya moving and coming back for more. Inspired by The Navigators, Fine Crowd, Eddie Coffey, Shanneyganock, Ron Hynes, The Fables, Irish Descendants, Rum Ragged, Simani, Matthew Byrne, The Pogues, Great Big Sea, Daoiri Farrell and Christy Moore.
Erin’s Fancy is a fun, exciting east coast session band. Playing a mix of East Coast and Irish songs, along with more traditional tunes, they are sure to keep your feet tapping all evening.
The group is comprised of a mix of Calgary and Newfoundland musicians:
- Mike Bidgood (St. John’s NL)
- Jason Barry (Placentia Bay NL)
- Erin E McCullough (Calgary)
- Gayla Roberts (Harbour Breton /Hermitage NL)
- Chad Pearen (Calgary)
Erin’s Fancy hosts open sessions in the Calgary area.
Hailing from the East Coast of De Winton and the North Shores of Calgary, our jolly ship’s crew will explore a lively set of songs and fiddle tunes from the East Coast, Irish, Scottish, Folk, and other Celtic traditions.
Get Reel is Doug Wagner (vocals, harmonies, bodhran, guitar, and fiddle) and Greg Black (vocals, harmonies, guitar, electric bass, and octave mandolin).
Over the last 15 years, Get Reel has performed in numerous venues around Alberta, including the Water Valley Celtic Festival, the Irish Cultural Society, Okotoks, and the High River Library. We are also the house band for Celtic Folk.
When the fog is just right, you can almost smell the ocean, see the shipwrecks, hear the crashing waves and a tiny trace of fiddling in the distance far behind him.
