BAR HARBOR — The Socks in the Frying Pan, one of Ireland’s hottest new trios, will play at Sweet Peas Café, Route 3, on Thursday, Aug. 20, at 7 p.m. The trio is being presented by the Acadia Trad School.
From Country Clare, Ireland, the trio blends Irish traditional melodies with innovative rhythm and melody. This, combined with an acoustic musical interplay, three-part harmony and a love for live performance, complements the traditional essence of both tune and songs in a fresh and entertaining way. Their debut CD was launched at the Ennis Ireland Trad Festival in November and was received very well with an audience exceeding the capacity of the venue. The band comprises two brothers, Shane and Fiachra Hayes on accordion and fiddle/banjo, accompanied by Aodán Coyne on guitar and vocals.
Tickets for $15 must be reserved in advance. Email [email protected].
