Conklin Ceili Band: Musically we are interested in presenting the music in a way that is familiar, yet unique and in a way that just stays in your head. This is accomplished by doing arrangements that combine trad tunes and songs in ways that you may not have heard before. The songs can be very old or contemporary, they might be from Irish composers, or they might be from Irish American contemporary composers. We are interested in teaching the history of the Irish as captured in the music, without being preachy, or without you even being aware that we are doing such. We are interested in doing all these things, and having you walk away from our show having just had a great time. The formula seems to work well.
