Mark Arrington

markarringtonMark Arrington has a special on where for $3 you get 3 rounds – a hard shoe, soft shoe, and set dance. The hard and soft shoe dances are the once-though tunes from Champtrax.

It’s great to practice to since it’s what they’ll actually have at the competition, and the tunes have a definite ending, i.e., no extra measures of music after your steps end, so you can get tell if their endings are on. If you need a set dance that’s not the original speed on the Kick It Up A Notch CD it offers a $2 saving.

Alton

Altan-RTE-960cWith their exquisitely produced award-winning recordings, ranging dynamically from the most sensitive and touching old Irish songs all the way to hard hitting reels and jigs, and with their heartwarming, dynamic live performances, Altan have moved audiences from Donegal to Tokyo to Seattle.

Throughout, there has been the unwavering commitment of the band to bringing the beauty of traditional music, particularly that of the Donegal fiddlers and singers, to contemporary audiences in a way that brings out all its qualities and destroys none. In fact, Altan have always believed that Irish traditional music is a modern music in every sense and its growing influence and popularity have proved them right.

The Garde Arts Center
