The Flying Column Irish Band appearing the 1st Wednesday of the month through December 5th 2012. Listen!
The Flyin' Column i s named for those bands of Irish heroes who helped carriy on the vision of Irish freedom. For 34 years The Column has carried on the cause of Irish music in Central New York. With a performance style that owes much to the "Ould Guard" of lrish and American folk music The Flyin' Column continues to perform at the better Saloons and Irish Festivals in New York State.
For the past three decades The Flyin' Column has started the show with "Come In" and ended the program with "Good Bye Mike, Good Bye Pat". The in-between has always been a mix of waltzes, sing-a-longs, and Irish ballads. With The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, The Rovers and The Corrie Folk Trio as mentors The Columnhas taken the traditional songs of Ireland, Scotland and North America and created a style of their own.
Whatever your dancing pleasure, slow waltzes, quick steppin', or jigs and Reels, The Flyin' Column can fill the bill. And while the traditional music of Ireland is The Column'smusical mainstay, a little Old Time Rock and Roll; and even some Country and Western may sneak into the mix.
