Ian Gould this weekend in the Pub

September 19th, 2012 by chuck

Musician Ian Gould wryly warns his audiences, “If Irish eyes are smiling, you better watch your step!” A guitarist and singer from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Ian today shares Irish wit and his striking voice with American audiences. “Americans say I speak with a thick brogue,” Ian deadpans. “But I don’t hear a thick accent. In Ireland, brogues are just shoes.” Besides humor, Ian’s shows share pub spirit and conjure images of Ireland. Blending traditional Irish songs—everything from “Back Home in Derry” to “My Wild Irish Rose”—with contemporary music—from the Beatles to U2—Ian reminds audiences that “the only thing better than singing is more singing.”





Ian will be playing in Charlie’s Pub Friday & Saturday Sept 21 & 22, starting at 7:30

Bedlam is a band born out of the talent pool of the MN Renaissance Festival. Over the years the band has had a diverse sound and many different members. Its recent incarnation is a folk band with a hippie attitude. Many familiar songs with a different slant along with some original material as well. Paul Regge is adept at lead guitar, Mandolin and the Concertina he also adds his vocal harmonies and laugh to the mix. John Sjogren is one of the founders of Bedlam he is also a member of the popular local Irish group The Tim Malloys. Mark is a virtuoso on the bass guitar his beautiful voice also lends to the groups great sound along with his impressive song writing talents. As the name implies a stage with this group on it is not a very stable one and you never know who may show up and sit in on a set.
