An Appalachian Celtic Journey

The Tri-Cities based Celtic band, Fire in the Kitchen, is the perfect listening for a day like today. The fog hides the mountains and mist is in the air in the valleys. It's the kind of day that you just want to hide under a wool blanket, drink some hot tea, grab a good book and listen to some music from the Highlands. FITK's first album, An Appalachian Celtic Journey, is a compilation of traditional Celtic jigs and mountain tunes with an Irish twist. The four musicians in the group play a number of combinations of instruments, including hammer dulcimer, penny whistle, guitar, flute, upright bass, violin and viola. Check out their web-site linked above for show dates and times. They have several coming up in the region.
