A fan of the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast recommended I reach out to The Chivalrous Crickets. They explore the roots, branches, and crossroads of Celtic, English, and American folk music. With equal attention to engaging performances and academic rigor, they bring to the stage boldly reimagined arrangements of standards and original songs with traditional influence. Their first full-length album was a Christmas album released last year.
