Show Alert: Delhi 2 Dublin

Tues., Sep. 18
Blind Pig - Ann Arbor
18+ - $12

Celtic music blends well with other genres. We loved the Celtic and jazz fusion of MAZ at London's Home County Folk Festival this summer. But one of the happiest collisions of Celtic with another culture would have to be Delhi 2 Dublin. They're touring in support of their latest album, Turn Up The Stereo. The hard copy is only available in Canada (the international release date is Jan. 2013). You can get the digital album until the end of September.
From their Radio 3 profile:

"The Vancouver-based band was born out of a live collaboration put together in 2006 for a one-off performance piece at a club night called Delhi to Dublin. The group was so well-received that requests for additional performances led to the official formation of Delhi 2 Dublin. 'Not being able to fit into any specific genre allows the band to create whatever we like and not be judged for it. Our audience expects nothing less.'"
