About the band:

Banshee in the Kitchen plays Celtic music with eclectic skill and merry abandon. The trio has delighted audiences since 2001 in festivals, theaters, living rooms, and countless other venues from New York to Los Angeles. They take traditional Celtic tunes, find the sweet spot between the old and the new, then stir it all up with playfulness and exquisite musicality they term "banshee-fying". The result is an eclectic, energetic sound all their own.

"The audience loves them. Not only are they accomplished musicians, but they are very engaging, excellent performers. "
- Patrick Moran, producer, Long Beach Celtic Festival-by-the-Sea

Critics praise their instrumental precision and flair for arrangement, concert producers love the way they can pack a house, educators rave over their ability to tap into the passion of their students, while audiences applaud the fun and oh-so-musical experience of being with Banshee in the Kitchen.

"Mixing up hammered dulcimer, fiddle, flutes, accordion, bouzouki, and guitar, these three women create a whirlwind of sound that's easily more than the sum of its parts. They'll keep you on your feet all night!"
- Grammy-winning fiddler Richard Greene

On stage, melodists Brenda Hunter (fiddle, hammered dulcimer) and Jill Egland (flute, accordion, whistle) trade off inspired flights of lead and counter melody over the dynamic rhythms of Mary Tulin (six- and twelve-string guitar, bouzouki). Primarily instrumentalists, they also sing with passion their trademark blended sets of tunes and songs.

"Jill and Brenda were 'locked in' as tight as any rhythm and blues band. With Mary at the microphone, they launched into the best version of 'False Knight on the Road' ...ever."
- David Nigel Lloyd, The Blackboard

Albums and Radio play:
December 2002 saw the Banshees' debut release, If We Were Us, closely followed by Catching the Mooncoin in June 2003. Internationally syndicated public radio show Echoes (PRI) features Mooncoin, which placed in its top 20 albums of 2003. Echoes producer John Diliberto has since aired a live interview and two concert broadcasts with Banshee in the Kitchen. Meanwhile, Catching the Mooncoin was picked up by NPR's All Songs Considered, and continues to get regular play in Ireland, Europe, Australia, and across the U.S.

Excellent musicianship, strong creative achievement and charismatic qualities
Playing Time - 57:31 -- To do it right, Celtic music requires a certain amount of sassiness, a bit of impudence along with strong respect and joyful spirit. The three women of Banshee in the Kitchen know how to balance their audacity with reverence of the art form. “Merry abandon,” they call it themselves. Or “banshee-fying” traditional tunes to impart a contemporary freshness to them. With plenty of personality, the result is a gripping performance that strikes gold. “Even Hotter Water” is the third album from this popular trio based in Bakersfield, Ca. Working through sets of dance tunes alternately with songs, Banshee in the Kitchen gives us music that is both memorable and impressionistic.

Brenda Hunter, Jill Egland and Mary Tulin are all multi-instrumentalists who are quite proficient and precise on their hammered dulcimer, fiddle, accordion, bodhran, flute, whistle, guitars and bouzouki. . “The Aran Boat Song” demonstrates how Hunter won the Natl. Hammered Dulcimer championship at Winfield, Ks. Using dampers on the strings is a technique that Brenda also employs for percussive effects at various points in the set such as on “Miss Gordon of Gight.” Guests include Jeff Pekarek (bass), Michael Mercy (percussion) and Amelia Egland (additonal vocals on two tracks). The band’s vocals are also immediately appealing, although they allocate a greater percentage of the nearly hourlong set to instrumental work. “Ye Jacobites by Name” is a popular song from Scotland’s national bard and poet, Robbie Burns. The band also has a knack for arranging to interweave melodies, counter-melodies and harmonies into a patchwork of passionate, spine-tingling music. High fidelity on the album and professional production are also comendable. Mastering engineer Bernie Becker (Neil Diamond's personal engineer) did a fine job. Together since 2001, the Banshee in the Kitchen energy is contagious. Some Celtic projects are delivered with earnest effort, but with little personality. This is not the case on “Even Hotter Water,” an album that gives us excellent musicianship, strong creative achievement and charismatic qualities. (Joe Ross, Roseburg, OR.)
