Liz and The Red Blossom Band
Liz McNicholl (guitar/vocals) John Hurley (guitar/vocals), Fred McKay (Bass), Pete Blossom (Guitar)
Liz started her own Connecticut based band in 2002, now called “The Crickstones” which hails some of the finest musicians in the area. Their sound has evolved into a crisp blend of Folk/ Americana style over the years with many originals songs intertwined in their repertoire. Their self titled Crickstones debut CD was released Oct 2009!
Their tight harmonies and John & Pete solo-dueling, lick trading, melody-swinging guitar action never fails to melt the crowd. Fred McKay, bassists anchors down the songs with his steadfast rhythm, often played through his Ukulele bass (a tiny instrument in contrast to the tall bass player that he is) and has a voice that will melt the world away.
The band, led by Liz McNicholl who hails originally from Co. Meath, Ireland adds beautiful vocals ranging from Celtic to folk/Americana Style often said to sound like the "Irish Adele" or Eva Cassidy. With tons of personality, a bit of wit & their voices & instruments blended so perfectly, the band will transport you for the evening and will take your troubles away ... well at least "temporarily"!
