Live Music Schedule for Charlie’s

June 11th, 2014 by chuck

Charlies Pub  Rest - FINAL copy

Live music for Charlie’s Irish Pub in the Historic Water Street Inn located in downtown Stillwater. Charlie’s Pub features live music every Friday and Saturday night from 7:30pm-11:30pm
(On the Patio weather permitting.)

June 13th & 14th – Hounds of Finn
A high-energy Irish musical entity forged from the roots of Celtic and American traditions. Based in St. Paul, MN, the Hounds perform Irish folk-rock and roots music from around the world, along with their own original material-topped off with a sprinkling of traditional Irish and Scottish tunes. One of Charlie’s Favorites!

June 20th & 21st – Paul and Lorraine
Paul and Lorraine started with a rouge folk band (Folk Underground), then split off to form their own duo. They bring a wide variety to the table, including: lots of drinking, lots of losing your love, plenty of death, doom, and destruction, along with happy little nights in the Pub. They take requests and will play almost anything (if they know about half of it!)

June 27th & 28th – Bedlam
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. 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.

July 4th & 5th – Sister Tree
SisterTree entwines traditional and original sentiments gathered among sessions in Minnesota, Montana, New York, and Texas, working with Irish Dance gurus, Old Time revivalists, New Age hipsters, and all who love romping in the woods. This lyrical duo features radiant, expansive harmonies for voices, fiddle, mandolin, and guitar. From lilting lullabies to rollicking tune sets, SisterTree explores the storied landscapes of the adventurous heart, calloused hand, and prodigious mind. SisterTree will bring you to a place of beauty, carry you away from all cares, and make you feel at home wherever you may find yourself.

July 11th & 12th – Hounds of Finn
A high-energy Irish musical entity forged from the roots of Celtic and American traditions. Based in St. Paul, MN, the Hounds perform Irish folk-rock and roots music from around the world, along with their own original material-topped off with a sprinkling of traditional Irish and Scottish tunes.

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.

July 25th & 26th – Tom Dahill
Tom Dahill and Ginny Johnson are superb entertainers with a fantastic repertoire of old Irish songs and dance tunes that you won’t hear from anyone else. They have command of many instruments between them; Irish button accordion, concertina, uilleann pipes, fiddle, whistle, bodhrán, guitar and they sort of juggle these instruments between them to suit the sounds to fit the venue as they go along through their performances. This is the music that is part of the soul of Ireland

August 1st & 2nd – Paul and Lorraine
Paul and Lorraine started with a rouge folk band (Folk Underground), then split off to form their own duo. They bring a wide variety to the table, including: lots of drinking, lots of losing your love, plenty of death, doom, and destruction, along with happy little nights in the Pub.

August 8th & 9th – Bedlam

August 15th & 16th -Broken Spoke
A high-energy Irish/folk band based in Saint Paul, MN highlighting the sweet stringed sounds of the fiddle, stand-up bass, guitar, and mandolin. Traditional Irish Music and Irish Rock with a twist! Broken Spoke never fail to deliver an outstanding performance that will have you up on your feet before you know it!

August 22nd & 23rd – Hounds of Finn

A high-energy Irish musical entity forged from the roots of Celtic and American traditions. Based in St. Paul, MN, the Hounds perform Irish folk-rock and roots music from around the world, along with their own original material-topped off with a sprinkling of traditional Irish and Scottish tunes.

Vinnie Rose

 

 

May 31st Vinnie Rose 1:00 to 4:00 on the Patio
Vinnie Rose first took up music singing in his church and school choir at the age of 5. At age 12, trying to impress a girl, he took up guitar. The girl’s not around but the guitar proved to be in it for the long haul. Through his teens he taught guitar lessons, studied rock, jazz and classical guitar and voice and also enjoyed performing in community and regional events.
In 2007, Rose moved back to Minneapolis, MN and has become an established musician in the Twin Cities jazz and pop scene. Vinnie currently performs as an acoustic guitar and vocalist as well as freelances with jazz small groups, big bands, rock/wedding bands, acoustic groups, orchestral ensembles, and classical guitar settings.

 

 

 

 

 

June 1st Eric Olson 1:00 to 4:00 on the Patio
OlyEric Olson, nicknamed “Oly,” grew up in a small town on the St. Croix River (Stillwater) just outside Minneapolis, MN. Oly started playing drums at age 11, which is apparent in his rhythmic guitar playing. Oly began his professional singer/songwriter career in Colorado, where he founded the band Tunnel 6 in 1995. Touring successfully throughout CO, the band released its first album, “Tunnel 6,” in 1997 under the production guidance of Aaron Trooien. In 2002 Oly released a solo acoustic album, “Holly Would,” with producer Brad Witham. In 2004, Tunnel 6 was replaced by Oly’s next project, Stereomaid, again fronted by Oly and featuring his original songs and unique blend of rock, folk and punk. In 2008, Stereomaid released “The Little Things that Come Between Us,” produced by Greg McRae (Rose Hill Drive, Flobots). Notable shows included the Roxy in Hollywood, supporting Porcupine Tree at the Fox Theater in Boulder and helping causes important to Oly with a number of benefit shows. Oly also co-founded and fronted a popular 80’s tribute band, Huge in Germany, from 2004-2009, which opened for Jefferson Starship and Country Joe McDonald.

Oly returned to his Minneapolis roots in 2011 and moved to the St. Croix river valley where he first discovered music. In a nod to the great 70′s rock that has always influenced his musicianship, Oly released a 7″ vinyl record with Minneapolis freelance producer Ed Ackerson (Golden Smog, the Replacements) in 2012.
