Known for their captivating sound and engaging stage presence, Burning Bridget Cleary is currently one of the hottest acts on the Celtic and folk music circuits. Band-leader Rose Baldino drives this band, delivering a dynamic blend of charisma, crackerjack fiddle work, and tightly woven harmonies. She’s joined by fiddler and vocalist, Amy Beshara, from the NYC Scottish trad scene. The driving rhythm and bass end is supplied by Lou Baldino on guitar and Peter Trezzi on percussion.
In December 2013, Burning Bridget Cleary was nominated “Top Traditional Group in a Pub, Festival, or Concert” in the Irish Music Awards sponsored by the Irish Music Association. Says Jack Baker of The Irish American News, “This is trad music at its best; alive, vibrant and lyrical. Don’t miss seeing this band.”
