Thistle & Bear with special guest Pineross

($15-$25 tickets | 4:00pm doors | 5:00pm show) Join Thistle & Bear as they celebrate the heritage of traditional Celtic and Scandinavian music in the Century Room!

**Thistle & Bear**

Thistle & Bear plays traditional folk music from Celtic and Scandinavian lands. Focusing on what unites the music of these regions, rather than the national boundaries that separate them. Emphasizing shared cultural currents while bringing a contemporary feel to timeless music, Thistle & Bear invites us to remember that the threads of story and song connecting us are stronger than the walls that divide us.

Thistle & Bear are **Mariah McCammond** (Ex-Cowboy, Loveland) on Fiddle and vocals, and **Anton Shekerdzhiev** (Kyklo, Ludo Djor) on Guitar.

**Pineross**

Pineross is an experimental folk ensemble lead by songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer Kevin Larkin. With roots in Celtic, bluegrass, and world music, the band incorporates electronically manipulated field recordings, sound design, and performance art into their performances and recordings.

For St. Paddy’s Day Reimagined, Larkin will be performing solo mandolin and electronics, breaking apart ancient Celtic tunes and re-assembling them through granular synthesis and a good dose of reverb.
