SCOTTISH, CELTIC, OTHER WORLD and FOLK MUSIC

Ed Perlman writes:
Here are some quotes about our music, though some of you remember from OSAS, and you're welcome to view our web page (see link below) for links to audio, video, and bios --

RSCDS TACTalk:  a precious artistic jewel...no lover of Scottish music should miss the opportunity to acquire a copy.
Boston Globe:  milestone album for the Boston Celtic community
Huffington Post:  "a sweet hybrid because Pearlman obviously truly loves the trad stuff"
Jazz Weekly:  "a mix of jazz and jigs that will raise a toast and get you on the dance floor"
Franklin Journal:  "impeccable traditional musicianship and genial stage presence"

Guitarist/singer John Doyle was a founding member of the Irish supergroup Solas, and has recently been bandleader of the Joan Baez band; his album with fiddler Liz Carroll received a Grammy nomination for best traditional world music album.

Trendy upscale pub, newly renovated historic trolley stop.

Once upon a time, 'Stop 97' was the last trolley stop in Akron, and the Old 97 was ready with a drink and a seat to welcome travelers, right across the street. Today, with a completely renovated interior and a trendy new cocktail menu, we're ready to be a stop on your journey again! We're featuring cocktails like The Southern Peach, Pearls Before Swine, The Fleur de Lis, and a housemade Sangria that has everyone asking for more! If you're feeling less adventurous, our full bar can easily supply all the old classics, and for the beer drinkers, we offer a daily selection of interesting local and seasonal brews.

You won't find another bar quite like us no matter how far you travel, and believe me, the drinks and atmosphere are worth checking out. Where else can you listen to jazz music, watch classic movies on the bar TV, relax in our warm, candle-lit lounge, and sample drinks invented specially for you?

Stop by for a drink, and you're sure to fall in love. As a famous bar owner once said, Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship...

Yes, the Old 97 is open for business again! No, it's not the same old bar it used to be! Hand-mixed cocktails and fresh, homemade food, make for a classy night on the town in our homey pub. Come for a lunch that's fresh not fried, stay to enjoy some tapas with a drink, or arrive late and try one of our liquid desserts!

Sample Menu:
homemade soups $4.97
meat and cheese plate $6.97
homemade bruchette $6.97

Neighborhood: Kenmore

THE TIGHTLY WOUND STRING BAND
 
Dennis Kempthorne and John Whitacre spent three days at Moorefield Studio
 near the scenic Killbuck Creek Marsh recording 31 tracks that will eventually
be released as a traditional dance music CD and a traditional Christmas
music CD. They recorded a mix of Irish, Scottish and early American tunes. Instrumentation is violin, mandolin, mountain dulcimer and guitar.
Release dates and performance dates will be forthcoming.
Kempthorne Company is working on a music website, whistlepigmusic.com, that
will also provide news and purchase information. Dennis and John are
considering offering a series of Celtic music workshops at Woodchuck Chase
in Washington Township, south of Alliance, Ohio, if we receive enough
interest.
