Rossacroonaloo, the House Trad Band at Liam Maguire's Irish Pub-Falmouth, MA, is a Traditional Irish Music group formed out of the Irish Session scene on South East Massachusetts. The group has been playing together for years in local Pubs. They have long been considered the Premier players in the sessions in the area. They have brought unbridled energy to any session/performances they attend. Their ability to pull the "heat" from Trad tunes and get your toes tapping is memorable. Their relaxed congenial ambiance adds that special touch unique in the atmosphere it creates. The primal rhythm of the Bodhran and the sweet melody of the Flute are enhanced by the fiery bow of the Fiddle, and all are held together by the strength of the Guitar.
Traditional music holds a special place in Ireland. To the Irish people it defines the culture and provides an eloquent link to the past. It is the music that reveals so much about the Irish, mischievous, evasive set tunes as well as proud airs. When you find yourself surrounded in that music, that holds such a long tradition, it can begin to feel spiritual even as long echo of the footfall is heard.
