Sligo Rags



June 7, 2008

“Sligo Rags”

The music of “Sligo Rags” is based on fiddle, guitar, mandolin and bass backing up comfortably smooth singing with melodic and unpretentious arrangements.  Their music is a combination of Celtic tunes with a touch of bluegrass. Playing traditional Irish tunes and adding bluegrass-style flat-picking and world music rhythms to these time-honored songs, “The Rags” have created a unique brand of Irish music that the bandmates are eager to share.   They were named “best folk band in Orange County” two years in a row.
