The CRAIC Show is an intense & wildly entertaining act, made up of
five international travelers who, in 1541AD, were banded together on an
ancient battlefield. This unique merging of music from far away lands brings
a sound that is unlike any other.
Irishman Daniel O’Ryan leads this group with roguish vocals, rhythmic mandolin, and intense bagpipes. Bringing lead-female vocals, low melodies on harmonium & strong bass percussion is our Scandinavian, Tonya den Norse. Harmonizing on our second set of bagpipes is Morgan the Celt, also playing haunting, Irish whistles & hurdy gurdy. Brazilian, wild man Netto brings it all together - drumming on a medieval setup that will blow your mind! Watching the group switch and interchange instruments throughout the show is something to see, songs are often started on acoustic instruments and ended with the entire group on percussions.
Ever-changing and constantly blending styles, The CRAIC Show is always bringing a fresh, high energy blend of World Medieval Music to a modern audience.
