Santa Fe, NM - Round Mountain will give an afternoon double bill concert to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in tandem with the Selkies, on Saturday, March 22nd at 3pm at Teatro Paraguas, 3205 Calle Marie. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors/college students, kids under 12 free. Beer will be sold by Duel Brewing Company.
Blending dusty American grit with a worldly amalgam of global influences, Santa Fe-based duo Round Mountain presents a singular take on folk music that is both foreign and familiar. The multi-multi-instrumentalist band of brothers has travelled the globe absorbing bits and pieces of musical cultures, returning to filter them through their own sepia-toned Americana framework.
Char and Robby Rothschild have been writing songs and singing together since they were kids harmonizing in the back of the family car. They live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where they grew up, now with families of their own, yet their musical horizons are as broad as the world. They weave elements of world music into their original songs, providing both the comfort of the familiar with the excitement of the new. They themselves are family men as well as travelers, whose performances bridge folk and world genres. They play their original songs on a multitude of instruments from around the world, often playing several of those instruments at once. Their lyrics evoke the emotion of family, giving listeners a path to access the universal and rugged beauty conveyed by global traditional music.
In honor of the occasion, the show will begin with songs from Ireland, Scotland, Britain, and Cornwall. Founded in 1995, The Selkies were a formative band for Round Mountain, featuring Robby's wife Brenna performing with Robby and Char. Strong influences from Irish folk revival bands like Planxty and the Bothy Band can be felt in their acoustic balladry, as well as Scottish singers like Ewan and Peggy McColl and Archie Fisher, and British groups like the Watersons and A. L. Lloyd.
