Continuing their international tour, Barrule visit the Earlville Opera House Friday June 17, 2016 at 8 PM. With a fresh approach to traditional Celtic music, Barrule wows audiences with their skill and passion.
A fusion of three distinct musical forces – Mabon front-man and accordion wizard Jamie Smith, gifted young fiddle-player Tomas Callister and versatile accompanist Adam Rhodes (Mabon) on bouzouki – Barrule’s twist on traditional Manx music evokes an atmosphere that reflects the diverse natural beauty of the Isle of Man: from rousing marches, jigs and reels to sorrowful slow airs and beautiful songs sung in both English and the Manx Gaelic language. Stories are told of ancient Celtic Gods, of unrequited love, of the toils of island life.
Formed in 2012, Barrule’s three legs have hit the ground running with major festival appearances including Celtic Connections, WOMAD Charlton Park, Sidmouth Folk Festival, Festival Interceltique de Lorient and the National Celtic Festival in Melbourne. Their debut self-titled album won many plaudits and has been awarded ‘Best Debut’ in the Spiral Earth awards 2014.

Tickets are $20 to the general public, $18 for members, and $10 for students and children (under 18), with premiums applying in the first four rows of seating.
