Harmony, history & humor: Celtic & American ballads”.
A song circle of Cece Borjeson & Ruth George, and The Birch Creek Band… Celtic, Appalacian, New Age & a belated salute to Cinco de Mayo!
Cece & Ruth bring you songs of love, of war & peace, hearth & home, and of the people from the American West to the Celtic Isles. Milk maids and their young swains, cowboys, kings & paupers, sailors, witches, sea-sprites and monks inhabit these ballads.
The band “Birch Creek” was formed in the summer of 2009 and is based out of the hills of Connecticut. They met at an outdoor Farm Aid concert held at a local farm, and their musical styles have meshed nicely ever since and have produced an eclectic repertoire of instrumental pieces. Their music contains a delicate blend of the sweet sounds of the mountain dulcimer, bouzouki, mandolin, guitar, and of course the signature sound of Aleks, their incredible flutist who takes center stage as she packs the most punch in their music. They perform everything from age old Celtic instrumentals from the Isles to a handful of smoky backwoods tunes and love what they do.
