New music from an old world
Sometimes the apple falls far from the tree. Even without Comhaltas, conservatories, or competitions, 3 musicians in Central Ohio who had come to love Celtic music came together to form Fialla. Their abilities to pick up traditional instruments and play them with grace seemed to be steeped in their DNA. All multi-instrumentalists, and one a dancer, they present Celtic music so faithfully one thinks they hear the accents of the old country. Finding their footing in the local scene, including performing at the Dublin Irish Festival, the band has grown to be a first-class representative of Celtic music.
Their selection of songs and tunes and the way they arrange the pieces has a freshness devoid of the usual stigma facing up-and-coming artists. Fialla finds songs that intrigue them, and plays with them until they make them their own. Not a pub band that plays all the favorite drinking songs, they search for songs with the zeal of anthropologists and craft them into unique experiences.
