Celtic Band BUA to Perform at Calvert Marine Museum
Get your toes tapping this Friday when BUA performs at the Calvert Marine Museum!
The performance is Friday, Sept. 28, at 7:30 p.m. at the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons. The concert is part of the Maritime Performance Series and is presented by the Celtic Society of Southern Maryland, Inc. This performance is sponsored in part by the Ruddy Duck Brewery & Grill.
Tickets are $30 at the door, and advance purchase discounts are available online at https://www.cssm.org/tickets/.
With a precision and intensity that is rarely heard on this side of the Atlantic, BUA’s sound stands out among modern bands in the genre by keeping the music down the path of tradition while still being able to raise the rafters with their playing, charm with their singing, and delight with their contemporary energy. Based in Chicago, Illinois—a long-celebrated center of Irish traditional music—BUA has established itself individually and as a group in the eyes and ears of the traditional community.
