The Granias, Lyons Colorado-based, all-female Celtic band, will perform
in Denver this month.
The Granias. inspired by their namesake, the famous 16th century Irish Pirate Queen Grania, these Celtic women bring their graceful, swashbuckling sound to Denver’s Swallow Hill stage on May 10. Expect traditional fiddle tunes “powered by pure energy” (Boston Music Spotlight), “exceptional” vocals (Irish Music Magazine) and “beautiful” harp, (The Folk Harp Journal), driving guitar and rhythmic Irish bodhran drum.

Fiddler Jessie Burns recorded three number one World Music albums while touring with Celtic supergroup Gaelic Storm. Sirotniak is known for her rich, session-style playing and unparalleled community spirit that earned her a place in the Longmont Times-Call’s Top 100. Gadbaw and Krimmel’s latest duo release was described by Colorado Public Radio as “stunning,” and by British folk magazine What’s Afoot as “an absolute joy to listen to.” With a varied repertoire of ancient melodies on the celtic harp, rollicking fiddle tunes, Irish traditional ballads and sing-alongs, The Granias are sure to steal your heart.
In addition to Burns on fiddle -Beth Gadbaw (vocals/drum), Annie Sirotniak (guitar) and Boulder harpist Margot Krimmel comprise traditional Celtic folk group.
