Irish band brings world influences to Spencer stage
For Hub City Times
SPENCER – A tag-on to the LuCille Tack Center’s performance season, this Ireland-based band brings together a mix of nine world-class musicians from seven different countries to deliver a distinctive blend of Latin rhythms and traditional Irish music – a fusion which they call “Salsa-Trad.”
Seamlessly blending their influences from Latin America, Europe, and the United States, the band creates a contemporary twist of traditional tunes with original compositions. Vocals in English, Spanish and Irish, provided by the band’s founder, Andres Martorell, meld with the group’s vibrant combination of instruments, creating a full, rich sound.
Baile An Salsa has enjoyed popularity worldwide since forming in 2012 in Galway, Ireland. Their self-titled debut EP received airplay and rave reviews in Ireland and as far away as Poland, South America, Singapore, and China.
The group will perform at the Tack Center on May 6 at 7 p.m. Tickets for Baile An Salsa are available online at lucilletackcenter.com or by calling the box office at 715-659-4499.
