The Alan Kelly Gang performs at Fermilab in Ramsey Auditorium on Saturday, March 1, at 8 p.m.
The Alan Kelly Gang has been taking audiences by storm, impressing music lovers and critics alike. Fronted by Ireland’s piano accordion maestro and described by New York’s Irish Voice as “in league with the best piano accordionists in the world,” the band includes some of Ireland’s finest musicians, all critically acclaimed masters of their own craft. The Alan Kelly Gang performs in Ramsey Auditorium on Saturday, March 1, at 8 p.m.
Alan Kelly, the driving force behind the Gang, has been a busy performer on the scene for 20-odd years, working with many different projects and musicians, some of his own motivation and some as musical collaborations with other top musician friends. Over his career so far he has amounted a vast wealth of experience that has helped lead him to his present-day status as one of Ireland’s most accomplished musicians.
The four-piece band is a combination of accordion, fiddle, flute, guitar and vocals. With many years behind them developing and refining their distinctive, pulsey sound, the Alan Kelly Gang create music that weaves in and out of the traditional, contemporary and world music genres.
Tickets are $23, $12 for those ages 18 and under. For more information or to make reservations, visit the Fermilab Arts Series Web page or call 630-840-2787.
