Slated for Saturday March 15th 2013
I am glad to hear that Texas Celtic rock group Cleghorn will be part of St Patrick’s Celebration! Their tune 9 Minutes of Woo still plays in my head. That’s a proof of their persistent devotion to craft. Anyone can be inspired to write a tune. But crafting that tune and making it immortal takes time. This is the area where father and son John Cleghorn ( Vocals, Guitars, Harmonica) Dylan Cleghorn (Fiddle, Bagpipes, Didgeridoo, Vocals) with Mike Griffin – Bass and Paul Muller – Drums really do well.
Check this press release from 3a:

CLEGHORN are a Texas-based Celtic Rock band. They combine stadium rock with blues and folk influences laced with a strong Celtic brew.
If you mixed ZZ Top with The Hobbit soundtrack, it might sound something like CLEGHORN. Their music mixes original folk/rock songwriting with high energy Celtic fiddle and bagpipe tunes. Creating their sound based on traditional Celtic fiddle tunes, they rock harder and play wilder shows with a fiddle and didgeridoo than most of their guitar-trashing contemporaries. music mixes original folk/rock songwriting with high energy Celtic fiddle and bagpipe tunes.
