Fire on McGinnis to play Rendezvous Friday

Posted: November 24, 2011 - 12:06am

Local band Fire on McGinnis will heat things up at the Rendezvous Friday, with a selection of songs from their debut CD, released in 2010, as well as other tunes. The Celtic, Irish and American rock group — Martha DeFreest (vocals, fiddle, guitar, Mark Lukey (guitar), Mat Ghelardi (bass), Yoshi Tanha (drums) and Lazlo (bagpipes, guitar) — an offshot of Stroller White Pipes and Drums, has recently been garnering attention outside the state. A remixed version of a track from their CD, “Foggy Dew,” was made into a video by an English aritst (www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDFLcd51lGs) and has been picked up on independent radio broadcasts such as Women of Substance Radio (www.wosradio.com). Another track, “Bedlam Boys,” was made into a video by a Polish artist (www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bmQ_sfeZtE).

The band also played their first gig outside of Juneau earlier this year, when they were featured at the Devil’s Thumb Brewfest in Petersburg.
