Enter the Haggis will continue their fall tour with an appearance at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis on October 18.
Caroline Browning of Asheville, North Carolina, has joined on bass guitar, adding energy to the lineup. Her musical talents include keyboard, mandolin and vocal harmonies.
Craig Downie, founding member of Enter the Haggis, is looking forward to another concert on the Rams Head stage.
"We are excited to return to the Rams Head in historic Annapolis,” Downie said. “It's such a class venue with great food and their own brewed beer. What's more, it's close to Annapolis Harbor in case we need a quick dip. We'll have to remember our swimming kilts, though."
Downie is a cornerstone to the band’s multi-instrumental prowess, switching between bagpipes, trumpet, Irish whistle and harmonica. Front and center are lead vocalists Brian Buchanan (fiddle, guitars keys) and Trevor Lewington (guitars, songwriting). Tom Barraco’s drum kit adds a hard-hitting percussive drive. Rose Baldino (fiddle, vocals) and Browning balance out the group.
The trajectory of the Canadian Celtic rockers spans two decades since a 2003 PBS special, “Live at Lanigan’s Ball,” brought them into an American orbit.
Rams Head On Stage is a seated nightclub featuring national and regional touring musicians and comedians. Food and beverages are served before and during shows, with house brewed beer and weekday happy hours. Showtime for Enter the Haggis is 8:00pm with doors opening at 7:00pm. Poehemia is the opening act. Call 410-268-4545 or go to www.ramsheadonstage.com for more information.
