CELTIC CONNECTIONS PULSE OF THE WORLD CONCERT Tickets here.
We’re super excited to welcome to NYC the tippiest toppermost players of the Scottish traditional music world, playing this weekend at Carnegie Hall. It’s a jam band with a touch of the highlands when Indian ragas meet Scottish strathspeys for The Pulse of the World, an evening of irresistible rhythms with Zakir Hussain—the reigning tabla master who has played with everyone from George Harrison to the Grateful Dead—laying down beats for Scottish fiddlers Charlie McKerron (of Capercaillie fame) and Patsy Reid (formerly of the fiery band Breabach), and master Scottish piper, Fraser Fifield. Pulse of the World is a freewheeling, pulse-quickening, constantly surprising fusion of Indian and Celtic sounds. Tickets here.
