Product Notes

Fireweed is an energetic and lively traditional Celtic band from Northern Michigan. Traditional Irish and Scottish tunes are skillfully played on hammered dulcimer, Irish whistle, guitar, Irish tenor banjo, Irish bouzouki, fiddle, autoharp, and bodhran. The band has recorded five CD's. Their style has been described as 'driving' and 'with a distinctive Irish pulse.' The group is described as 'tight' in their sound as they blend a number of traditional acoustic instruments. They play tunes with a range of tempos so that their recordings are never boring or repetitive. Jigs and reels are played at a blistering pace. Slower tunes lure the listener into a place of calm peace. Their name 'Fireweed' comes from a flower in northern Michigan that grows in the wild. It is one of the first plants to grow back after the devastation of a forest fire. It survives because of it's deep root. This group sees this as a symbol of their music. The tunes they perform have a deep root in tradition that has allowed them to survive and thrive through generations. This beautifully crafted collected of tunes illustrates that Celtic music is a rich and ever growing tradition.
