 Sunday July 20th 


TinPan Alley/Alt Rock

The Wiyos have been rolling for over a decade. They were one of the first "old-timey" bands to emerge on the national scene in the first wave of acoustic bands riding the renewed popularity of early swing jazz, rural folk, old-time blues and Appalachian music. Their relentless touring in the US and Europe, and numerous critically acclaimed albums and EPs landed them a full 28-day summer tour as openers of the 2009 Bob Dylan Show. The Wiyos were also featured in the BBC television documentary, “Folk America – Hollerers, Stompers and Old-Time Ramblers”. In 2010 they were featured in the BBC television special "No Sleep 'Til Yell". In 2013 The Wiyos (Michael Farkas, Teddy Weber and Sauerkraut Seth Travins) return to their roots, leaving some of the electricity of the Twist tours in the studio and reintroducing Michaels legendary washboard. The Woodstock Times writes "the fact that it is getting harder to pigeonhole their style(s) is perhaps the best indicator of their growth." They have been continually unveiling new material and re-interpreting their own 6-album catalogue. In 2013 The Wiyos are booked for select shows in the US (including a family concert at Carnegie Hall), a UK tour and there’s even rumors of another album in the making. Stay tuned

 The Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission is happy to present the Burning Bridget Cleary international touring band in a free concert on the lawn of Shippen Manor, Sunday, July 13th at 6 PM. Burning Bridget Cleary players are: Rose Baldino (fiddle, banjo) and Deirdre Lockman (fiddle, vocals),  Lou Baldino (guitar) and Peter Trezzi (djembe drum).

They have played hundreds of gigs along the East Coast and produced four CDs. We play high-energy traditional Celtic music, but with our own distinctive resonance,” Baldino says, “We add in a lot of original pieces as well as contemporary tunes and songs with a base of traditional and folk music. It’s very high-energy and exciting including some haunting airs and beautiful waltzes as well.
Burning Bridget Cleary is a tribute to the last witch burned in Ireland, according to folklore.


Shippen Manor is located just off Route 31 in Oxford. This free event starts at 6 P.M. and is sponsored by the Warren County Cultural & Heritage Commission, supported by the Warren County Freeholders, and is funded in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
