Céad Míle Fáilte from one of Colorado’s most innovative Irish bands!

Avourneen‘s approach to Celtic music doesn’t rely on formula.

The Denver-based trio may specialize in Irish music, but their musical approach pulls from a wealth of other genres and styles. Guitarist/bouzouki/vocalist Adam Goldstein, violinist/mandolin/pianist CL Morden and bassist Alice Alister are fans of incorporating elements from their eclectic influences. Audiences are liable to hear traces of American and European folk in original tunes like “Sparrow” and “Banks of the Liffey”; they’re apt to pick up traces of vintage jazz, modern orchestral music and classic rock in interpretations of standards like “Whiskey in the Jar,” “Come Out Ye Black and Tans,” “Easy and Slow” and “Drowsy Maggie.”

For all of the band’s diverse interests, their common thread remains strongly Irish. A shared love of music marks the rapidly expanding catalogue of this exciting group, and their approach is sure to interest any listener with even a casual interest in the genre. Their music is a hybrid of old and new, a fusion of ancient and contemporary.
