An instrumental Celtic band that is pushing the frontiers in Irish music. With the unusual combination of fiddle, cello, keyboard and drums, they deliver a rocking show that connects deeply to their audiences. Group numbers are interspersed with soulful duos, solos, and trios. Their repertoire includes haunting versions of “Star of the County Down ”, to timeless songs, and all-out rockin’ interpretations of hot Irish fiddle tunes. FEAST completed their first European tour in January 2008. Fiddle player Ilya Goldberg brings a rich, fat sound and Celtic flash to the group. Tyme Mientka’s cello captivates with tone and amazing finger dexterity. On keyboard, Kathryn Mientka makes use of everything from Steinway to cosmic synthesizer sounds. David Alderdice has been called a wizard of percussion. Accomplished violist Stephanie Mientka will be joining the band on March 14.
