Colorado based Celtic band FEAST brings a unique approach to Irish music – it was born out of a classical chamber music series in 2005, when a one-time special event performance turned into a lasting commitment to create a unique Celtic band.
US born arranger and composer Kathryn Mientka, also pianist in the band, has Irish roots and dual citizenship with Ireland, although born & raised in Minnesota. Drummer David Alderdice adds his unique blend of world rhythms and funky grooves, reflecting his New Orleans roots. All FEAST members have performed nationally and internationally as trained classical musicians, and are passionate about crossing over into the timeless music of Ireland.
FEAST’s powerful, emotionally driven, virtuoso performances have been greeted with wild enthusiasm and standing ovations from audiences of all ages. FEAST ‘s programs offer a delightful variety: brilliant and fiery group numbers are interspersed with soulful duos, solos, and trios. The emotional palette ranges from haunting versions of “Star of the County Down”, to humorous versions of timeless songs, to all-out rockin’ interpretations of hot Irish fiddle tunes.
