Concert: The Press Gang
Time: 7:30 pm
Formed in 2009, Celtic instrumental trio The Press Gang features Chris “Junior” Stevens on concertina and button accordion, Alden Robinson on fiddle, and Owen Marshall on bouzouki, guitar, and harmonium. From their home base in Portland, Maine, the group tours widely in the northeast and recently performed a series of concerts in the Pacific Northwest. Consummate performers, The Press Gang win their listeners’ hearts with their humorous stage presence as well as their musicianship. Stevens and Robinson’s tight squeezebox-fiddle duo twines at the core of the band’s sound, propelled by Marshall’s imaginative and highly rhythmic accompaniment. “The Press Gang is one of those rare bands that are ingenious, driving, thoughtful and yet have great respect for tradition.” To make reservations, click here.
