Joanne MacIntyre took to the stage in Glendale for the first time after a car accident three months previously. Along with her four sons and sister, Rita Rankin, they treated the audience to several Gaelic tunes at the Ceilidh in the Glen concert on October 16 in Glendale.
The Fretless fired up the stage, at the St. Mary of the Angels Community Hall in Glendale, with their unique and progressive traditional music. The foursome is playing an essential part in the emerging movement mainstreaming traditional Irish folk music.
