Plaid Menagerie: Scottish, Cape Breton and Irish Fiddle Music
Celtic folk music distilled into a right rant with awesome rhythmic drive. Plaid Menagerie: Sonoma County Wine Country's Celtic band for your Irish, Scottish, Renaissance or Maritime themed entertainment. Plaid Menagerie have appeared at various venues, including the Paragon Room of the prestigious Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, CA; the Monkey House in Berkeley; Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, CA; Nicholson Ranch Winery: The Olympic Club in San Francisco, CA.
Now joining forces, the fiddlers, Nanette Fynan and Nora Guthrie, and accordion/bagpipe player Alan Keith of Rosin the Bow, give the traditional tunes a contemporary flair. The drummer, Kevin Borges from Courtin' Disaster and singer, Crist Lind of Brothers Horse, keep the music upbeat. Keyboard player, young Jared Bailey adds a Scottish Country Dance flair. They make a tight group, playing old Irish pub standards as well as memorable tunes from the emerging artists of the Celtic music scene of Scotland, Ireland and Cape Breton. While their sound is unique, it can be compared to Mollys Revenge, Blazin Fiddles, Banshee In the Kitchen and The American Rogues.
Try out this exciting band, Plaid Menagerie. Make your wedding, party or corporate event a peak experience with mood altering music.
Hire us as solo bagpiper, violinist, duo, trio or more or the whole group of 7.

For my wedding ceremony I had always wanted to have a live band play. Being that I wanted to honor my Irish roots, and appease my grandmother, I decided that a celtic band would be the best kind of music for me. I was delighted to find Plaid Menagerie and to work with Nan. She is wonderfully kind and very easy to work with. We emailed back and forth, and I always found that Nan was very prompt- and when I wasn't, she was very understanding for my delays. I sent her some songs that I liked, to give her an idea as to the kinds of music I was thinking for the ceremony, and the choices she made for the band to play where spot on. I more than highly recommend this band.
