Open The Gate

by Stanley & Grimm

On Open the Gate, Stanley & Grimm take their Celtic-influenced modern traditional music on a world tour with jigs and reels straight out of Ireland, fiddle tunes from Scotland, Canada, Sweden, and the United States, an original tune named for Nikki’s son, and a playful pairing of a popular Irish seisiun tune, “The Mason's Apron,” with the classic Broadway standard, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Woven through the instrumentals are songs that range from the traditional favorite “Carrickfergus,” to newer hits from Irish songwriters Luka Bloom and the Sawdoctors—as well as the “Galway Girl,” from American roots songwriter Steve Earle.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Stanley and Grimm (fiddler Nikki Engstrom and singer/guitarist Sean Brennan) lead listeners into a celebration of traditional music through old and new interpretations of jigs, reels, and songs played with lively fiddle, guitar, and voice. Their last CD, Another Round, was awarded the Celtic Radio Music Award for the 2008 Album of the Year, and also took top honors in the “Jigs & Reels” category. The Celtic Radio Network describes their music as “emotionally stirring, exhilarating, perfectly splendid!” The infectious fun they have on stage and their intense playing have helped them to become fan favorites on the New England traditional music scene.

According to Dan Hallissey, host of Boston’s popular “Irish Rambler Radio Show,” STANLEY & GRIMM have a wonderfully pure, organic and authentic sound that makes them rank among the finest entertainers on this side of the Atlantic. Their arrangements and playing ability enables them to produce an acoustic tapestry which is close to perfection.”
