"The Langer's Ball" Celtic Concert takes place on Saturday, March 28, at 7:30pm. The Celtic music group "Banish Misfortune" will be the opening act for A free will offering only! Please show up for the fun and help the theatre.
As a duo, Michael & Hannah have been playing since 2007 and have played over 500 shows at various locations; including the Irish Fair of MN, the Iowa Irish Fest, Shamrock Fest in Kansas City MO and have opened for Toronto based Celtic rock band Enter The Haggis.
Their first release As I Roved Out (2008) was awarded a Special Mention for “Best Celtic Rock & Punk CD’s of ’08 from PaddyRock.com and they were hailed as “…A Band To Watch.” This was followed by Ships Are Sailing (2009) which took the band to a new level in the studio, featuring full band arrangements and some original songs; Ships Are Sailing got a #11 spot that year from PaddyRock.com and earned a Special Mention from Shite’n'Onions as a best of for 2009
The warm reception for the live release, along with Michael & Hannah’s need to rock inspired them to pick up the mantle of Irish punk rock and in late 2011, they met the right musicians for the job. Bringing in Derek Jaimes, a former drummer of fellow Celtic rockers, The Wild Colonial Bhoys, Drew Miller, Bassist & leader of the legendary Rock’n'Reel band Boiled in Lead, and Rockabilly guitarist Danny McDermott who has played with countless bands. Together these 5 re-worked the material the duo had been playing for years, bringing new energy and talent to the mix, as well as revisiting the songwriting and bringing new originals to the stage.
Music from The Langer’s Ball is regularly featured on podcasts from around the world such as Paddy Rock Radio, Shite ‘n’ Onions, Celtic Roots Radio, 67 Music, Marc Gunn’s Irish & Celtic Music Podcast, and many more.
