For the Old Blind Dogs are descending into Maui "a Jiggin' & a Reelin'" for three exuberant Celtic Celebrations. The well-seasoned band provides a full offering of delights - from raucous reels to soulful ballads.
Their ballads transport listeners to the rolling hills of Scotland thanks to the captivating baritone of Jim Malcolm, often heralded as the "Voice of Scotland". But the prowess of Malcolm's voice is only half of the reason why fans so appreciate the Old Blind Dogs' ballads. Many concert goers love the ballads simply because they provide a critical break from the relentless dance tunes that the Dogs love to unleash. "More than anything, we like it when people let their hair down and get up and dance," Malcolm stated in a recent interview. And dance they do !
When the whistling notes of Rory Campbell's bagpipe combine with Jon Hardie's feisty fiddle and Fraser Stone's heart-pumping percussion, dance floors explode in blazing motion. Audiences can't help but jump into feverish jigs. As proclaimed by 'The Scotsman', "The Old Blind Dogs play with a compelling energy and intoxicating rhythm as players and audience seem to share a wild ecstasy of emotion."
Fiery Festival - Mulligan's on the Blue: From 3pm to 10pm on Sunday, Sept. 19th, the Old Blind Dogs, Maui's Celtic Tigers & other performers will transform Mulligan's & the surrounding hillside into a boisterous Celtic Highlands Festival. Slainte !
