Feeling a bit camera shy


Celtic music is enjoying unprecedented popularity. The Lash, a distinctly American band, has adopted the Irish sound and fused it with rock and roll, resulting in a turbo-driven take on traditional music. The band combines folk instruments like fiddle, mandolin, banjo, accordion, and cittern with bass and drums. The result is unlike anything else found on the music scene. In bars, nightclubs, and theatres all across the country, The Lash has been entertaining packed rooms with a show they call Celtic Mayhem.

The Lash has shared the stage with traditional Irish acts (The Clancy Brothers, John Whelan, Eileen Ivers), fellow Celtic rock bands (Black 47, Gaelic Storm, Flogging Molly), and even stadium rockers (Huey Lewis & the News, Train, Hootie and The Blowfish). Their music quite literally knows no boundaries. The Lash has performed on both coasts of the United States and most points in between. They spend over a third of every year in front of an audience.

Every Direction, released by The Lash, is an exciting mix of traditional and contemporary sounds that combine Irish melodies with Cajun, Latin and Rock rhythms. The band is currently in pre-production for their third CD, which promises to meld increasingly diverse influences into their already unique sound. In the meantime, The Lash continues to travel the country with their energy-soaked live show, hammering out an even bigger circle of fans. From the first crack of a snare drum to the final sigh of an accordion--at open-air festivals and sweaty neon pubs--audiences are enjoying their distinctive version of rocked out Irish music.
