Album Notes
“One of the most exciting bands I’ve seen in the last couple of years!” –Jack Baker, The Irish American News

“ . . . a rockin’ Celtic sound”! -irishphiladelphia.org

“. . . a highlight of this summer’s Philadelphia Folk Festival”. - Michael Kornfeld, acousticmusicscene.com

Burning Bridget Cleary has been performing and recording their distinctive style of Celtic traditional music since 2006.

Band-leader, Rose Baldino, drives this band with an unusual combination of charisma, crackerjack fiddle work, and tightly woven harmonies. The front of the band is shared with some of the best Celtic fiddle talent on the East Coast. Currently featured is Amy Beshara, a multi-talented fiddler/vocalist from the NYC Scottish music scene. A driving rhythm and bass end is supplied by Lou Baldino on guitar and Peter Trezzi on percussion. Known for their captivating sound and engaging stage presence, Burning Bridget Cleary has become a solid presence on the Celtic and folk music circuits.

Burning Bridget Cleary has earned a reputation for presenting high-spirited Celtic music at festivals, concerts, and music series all over the U.S., including a 2011 tour to Ireland. While in Ireland, the band had a unique opportunity to visit the rural County Tipperary cottage of their namesake, Bridget Cleary, who is remembered as "the last witch burned in Ireland".

The band broke new ground in 2013 when their fourth CD, “Pressed for Time,” hit #1 on the Roots Music Folk and Roots Charts, and finished the year as one of the Folk DJ’s most played albums. Their second release, “Everything is Alright”, was awarded “2009 Album of the Year” by CelticRadio.net in Boston. Their third album, “Totes for Goats” was formally entered into the Traditional Irish Music Archives in Dublin, Ireland. BBC’s music is featured on hundreds of radio programs worldwide, including syndicated programs, Thistle and Shamrock, FolkScene, SingOut Radio, and The Midnight Special.

Burning Bridget Cleary was listed in Marc Gunn’s “Top 20” International Celtic bands for 2014.

Everything is Alright

I heard track 1 from this album on KBCS.fm's Sunday's Hornpipe, and it yanked my attention away from whatever I had been doing. I bought the album, and like reviewer Doug says, I can listen to it over and over. Every track is interesting, every track is different, every track sticks in your head. I think I've heard it a few dozen times in the three days I've had it.

Weaknesses: I might wear the joy out of it by over-listening. Also, I note that BBC doesn't have any tour dates in Seattle.

Everything is Alright
The new CD is INCREDIBLE. It is so richly textured and emotionally moving as well as being full of fun and fire. The Girls (Rose and Genna) are my Girls real life heroes. The arrangements are amazing too ---too many Celtic albums are great for dancing but not complex, varied, or well-enough arranged for repeated listening. But I can listen to this new cd over and over and still find new things to hear. CONGRATS to BBC from your biggest fans in NE PA.

Everything is Alright
Wonderful! Great songs...singing is like bells ringing in tune~ Saucy Sailor and Faeries great tunes. Highly recommend!

Brian Ciemnolonski

What can I say
I love violins. And these girls play them to the level of art. Not as energetic as their first CD Catharsis, they instead gained what I can only say as sophistication without loosing any of the fun. A note to Jon, do not worry , I can't imagine a reality in which I could play this music to much to wear the joy out of it.
