Take Down The Door
with special guest
Dahlby & Nadine
Rogers Hall, 4th and High Street, Lyons CO
Doors 7pm; Concert 8pm
Described as "a powerhouse Celtic band" (Boulder Weekly), Take Down the Door hearkens the old Irish tradition of taking the door off its hinges and throwing it down on a dirt cottage floor when it was time for a party. Based in Lyons, Colorado, this high energy quintet features former Gaelic-Storm fiddler Jessie Burns, renowned bassist, producer and teacher Eric Thorin, Colorado's foremost Celtic fiddle and guitar duo Adam Agee & Jon Sousa, and singer/percussionist Beth Gadbaw, described by Irish Music Magazine as "exceptional". Take Down the Door hits hard with killer musicianship and masterful arrangements. The band's foot-stomping, heart-stopping, wide-open sound reflects its name and its natural habitat.
Opening the show is Estes-Park based duo, Dahlby & Nadine. Born out of a local bluegrass jam, they discovered they had a similar drive to make music and write songs. The first time they blended their voices, they knew they had a sound vibration that must be shared, and a playful energy not to be contained. Their songwriting contains clever lyrics with irony and metaphor, and their arrangement of old standards is refreshing.
