About Carnival of Souls
CARNIVAL OF SOULS has been performing traditional and original Celtic music in Western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio, and West Virginia for nearly twenty years. The group uses a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional instruments to produce a rich range of music that would be at home in a pub in Dublin or a coffee shop in Shadyside.
Led by Brian and Kelly Lowry the band features highland pipes, bodhrán drum, 12 string and bass guitar, mandolin, fiddle, accordion, and keyboard along with high spirited vocals.
The band includes talented members of the extended Lowry family. The band members are:
Roy Abbott – flute
Daryl Hartman – vocals, 12-string guitar, mandolin
Brian Lowry – keyboards, accordion, tin whistle, hammered dulcimer
Kelly Lowry – vocals, percussion
Jonathan Shegog – Highland pipes, small pipes
Caitlin Lowry – vocals, bodhran, keyboard
You can listen to their music from their CD No Scone Unburned – “Forty-two Pound Checque and Wind that shakes the Barley” – and more samples of No Scone Unburned and their second CD, SconeHenge, through CD Baby.
Their musicianship has been hailed as creative and with tight arrangements in reviews of their CD – “No Scone Unburned”:
“… it’s when the band gets creative that their sound gets most interesting. There are dreamy arrangements of “Lagan Love” and “She Moves Through the Fair” with echoing keyboards and rainsticks, a version of “Bogie’s Bonnie Bell” with a rythmic variation that turns it into a sad calypso, and a rocking hammered dulcimer reel set.
The Pittsburgh Tribune/Review
“…Arrangements are tight, and the songs bristle with tin-whistles, accordion and galloping bodhran, an Irish drum played by vocalist Bob Hartman. The band proves equally adept at pint glass-rattling rave-ups such as “Allistrum’s March” and the lush, languid American Indian ballad “Shenandoah”.
With the luck of the Irish and by reserving tickets at 724-659-3153, you can experience the joyous music making of the Lowrey family and Carnival of Souls during St. Patrick’s Day weekend on Saturday, March 18, 2023.
