Vacationland Ceili Band

October 2, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$18 – $20
Vacationland Ceili Band

Portland’s very own beloved Vacationland Ceili Band (VLCB) will inaugurate the new music loft at Linden Lea in Pownal! The VLCB features Tom Rota on uilleann pipes, Will Woodson on flute and piccolo, Alden Robinson on fiddle, and Miles Isacke on banjo and guitar.

Forged in the fires of the pre-covid Monday Night Irish session at O’Reilly’s Cure in Scarborough, four of Portland’s finest traditional Irish musicians have come together to form the Vacationland Ceili Band. The quartet of pipes, flute, fiddle and banjo (with some guitar & piccolo for good measure) brings tunes from across the full spectrum of Irish music to the stage and performs them with the fun, energy and humor of a lively session at your local pub.

Space is LIMITED, so please make your reservations soon! VLCB tickets: $18 in advance, or $20 (cash only) at the door. Email lindenleapownal@gmail.com or jllynch@gwi.net to reserve.

The lads of the VLCB don’t have a CD out yet (although they’ve been recorded on their own and in other bands), so you’ll just have to come out to Pownal and hear this grand quartet’s great Irish music for yourselves! Don’t wait to reserve – over half sold!

100% of proceeds go to the musicians.
