Queen's Gambit is a traditional Celtic vocal group that brings lovely three-part harmonies to classic Irish, Scottish, and English ballads, with a healthy side order of session tunes, English country dance music as well as filk to the ears of its listeners. They can be found playing at only the very best Renaissance Festivals throughout the Central U.S.
This third release, "OFF THE BOARD!" showcases some of the bawdier side of Celtic music, blended with a distinctly Irish style.
We've been promising this CD for many months, and after two false starts, have finally released "OFF THE BOARD!". The project itself took on a character of its own, and made us wait until it developed its own personality before it would let us finish it. Once it decided it wanted to actually be done, the creativity and arrangement techniques took over, and the result is worth a listen!
