Craic In The Stone

Craic In The Stone 1 Photo

A new force on the Celtic folk rock music scene, Craic in the Stone has quickly become known for their engaging storytelling songs and tight, captivating sound.  Imagine Loreena McKennitt meets Gaelic Stormexhilarating yet mesmerizing.   Lead vocalist Alana Fitzgerald drives the sound with her expressive and siren-like vocals alongside her sister Fiona Murray, with harmonies that are unimpeachable. Interwoven with their charisma is the violin virtuosity of Annie Cavadini and guitar mastery of Jay Rofsky. Driving the rhythm is Scotty McKay on Bodhrán and percussion and Bill Strongin on electric bass, although every set includes a delightful foray with Well on mandolin or Strongin on piano, adding variety to the sound.

 


The band was formed in 2013 when a group of experienced musicians put together a set of traditional and modern Celtic tunes for a one night concert to benefit the Chance Theater in Anaheim, California. Due to the tremendous audience response following that concert, the band recorded their first album, "Say Yes to Craic," before the band even had a name. During the next two years, Craic in the Stone performed at venues such as Muldoon's Irish Pub, The Pint House, The Big Irish Fair, and the Samueli Theater at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, as they honed their unique Celtic folk/rock/trad sound.  Their second album, "no, nay, NEVER," was released in the fall of 2014 and in December, the band performed and arranged the music for the world premiere of A Celtic Holiday with Craic in the Stone at the Chance Theater, a hybrid Celtic Christmas concert and storytelling production, which played to sold out houses. That production was recognized by Examiner.com for Best Special Event in their Best of Orange County Theater of 2014.

 

Craic in the Stone has earned a reputation for its invigorating, eclectic Celtic sound that spans gorgeous storytelling and tightly woven harmonies.  Their wide repertoire includes pub songs and traditional tunes, originals and fresh covers, as well as instrumental jigs and reels. Named after the quintessential Irish expression, "CRAIC" (pronounced “crack”) for fun times, Craic in the Stone continues to sell out venues as they share the ancient tales with a unique instrumentation and style that is relevant today.

 

Currently, Craic in the Stone is performing all over Southern California while focusing on recording their third album which will be released later this year.
