Scotland’s Dallahan will bring their modern interpretations of original and traditional Irish tunes and songs together with Scottish and Hungarian traditions – all skillfully blended with jazz and swing influences – to the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, on Friday, Sept. 23 at 7:30 p.m.

Since exploding onto the international folk music scene in 2013, the Edinburgh-based quartet has performed at prestigious festivals in Europe and the United States including Celtic Connections in Glasgow and Milwaukee Irish Fest, where they returned for a second year in August. Wherever they perform their intoxicating musical mix, they carry their audience along on a breathtaking journey.

Each member is an established, award-winning performer in various musical styles from classical and jazz to Balkan and Celtic. Now winning awards as a band, they have collaborated with other well-known artists including Scottish singer-songwriter Dougie MacLean and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. At the band’s core are singer/guitarist Jack Badcock and multi-instrumentalist Ciarán Ryan. They are joined by fiddle player Jani Lang and Andrew Waite on piano accordion.

A Folk Radio UK review of their 2016 CD, Matter of Time, said they “have created a sound that unifies, rather than exemplifies the regional differences offering something new, distinct and infinitely appealing.”

“Dallahan is like a world music festival in one group, all trad, all Scots, all world and all totally, completely new…virtual masters of their instruments, blazing away in extremely rich and complex arrangements.” – LiveIreland

Tickets for the show are $21 in advance, $25 on concert day and $10 for students with ID. To order online, visit www.ichc.net. Tickets may also be ordered by calling (414) 345-8800.
