ABOUT THIS ALBUM


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

In December 2012, Burning Bridget Cleary was nominated as "Best New Irish Artist" in the Irish Music Awards sponsored by the Irish Music Association.

Called “the Allman Brothers of Celtic fiddle bands, only prettier” (Mike Weekly, Pottstown Mercury), Burning Bridget Cleary features the musical talents of Rose Baldino and Deirdre Lockman, who lead the band with high-energy and tightly woven harmonies in both fiddle and vocals. The driving rhythm and bass end is supplied by Philadelphia native, Lou Baldino on guitar, and percussionist, Peter Trezzi, on djembe drum.

BBC has played hundreds of performances along the East Coast, and produced three CDs. Their second production, Everything is Alright, was named “2009 Album of the Year” by Boston-based CelticRadio.net. Their newest CD, Totes for Goats (March 2011), is receiving plenty of radio attention and praise from reviewers.

"The most noticeable thing in Totes for Goats, in addition to the fierce fiddle playing, is the maturity of the girls' tightly woven vocal harmonies, which have acquired both depth and resonance" (Steve Siegel, The Morning Call).

A debut music video with single release, "Stor Mo Chroi: Darling of My Heart", was published in May, 2012 on YouTube and all the major music download sites.

A Fourth full-length CD is in the works with a planned May/June 2013 release. (The "Ballad of Tim Evans" will be included).

In the spring of 2011, Burning Bridget Cleary completed a weeklong tour of Ireland where they performed at seven different venues from Dublin to Galway. While there, the band had a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to visit the rural Tipperary cottage of their namesake, Bridget Cleary, who is remembered as "the last witch burned in Ireland". Another musical tour to Ireland is scheduled for July 2013.

Known for their captivating sound and engaging stage presence, Burning Bridget Cleary is currently one of the hottest young acts on the Celtic and folk music circuits.
