The Wailing Banshees
7:00 PM - Earle Recital Hall - Sage Hall
Started in 2005, the Wailing Banshees are Smith's Irish/Celtic music ensemble. The group is made up largely of fiddles, flutes, whistles and even bagpipes, with a rhythm section that can consist of guitar, bodhran, mandolin and even cello! The Banshees rehearse 2 hours per week and give two full concerts per year, and are often in demand at various events on and off campus.
Their music is largely Scottish and Irish but includes all the Celtic lands and ranges in style from more modern arrangements, to sean nos and ceili band. The ensemble is open to all Five-College students with permission of the director, Ellen Redman.
