Rock and Reel

Two great bands are playing in the Triangle this weekend. Seven Nations is an alt-rock/pop band with bagpipe and fiddle that has a really energetic vibe. They're at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro ("West Chapel Hill") this Saturday night.

7N toured this summer with two other great Celtic-derived bands, Newfoundland's Great Big Sea and the Young Dubliners. As 7N is the 800-pound gorilla on the East Coast celtic rock circuit, so are the Dubs on the West Coast. They're playing at Jillian's in Raleigh Sunday night.

Both bands get a major thumbs-up from me.
