Once called “the Allman Brothers of Celtic fiddle bands, only prettier”, Burning Bridget Cleary features the remarkable musical talents of Rose Baldino and Deirdre Lockman, who lead the band with high-energy and tightly woven harmonies in both fiddle and vocals. The driving rhythm and bass end is supplied by Philadelphia native, Lou Baldino on guitar, and percussionist, Peter Trezzi, on djembe drum.
“One of the most exciting bands I’ve seen in the last couple of years!” –Jack Baker, The Irish AmericanNews
“ . . . a rockin’ Celtic sound!” -irishphiladelphia.org
