aurora celtic

From the hills of West Virginia, Aurora Celtic plays evocative, original and traditional music for guitar, fiddle, Irish flute, whistle, mandolin and tenor banjo that bridges the cultures of Scotland, Ireland and Appalachia.

Band members Alice Fleischman, Michael Broderick and Jake Pitzer are multi-instrumentalists who have played throughout the Mid-Atlantic states, at the Kennedy Center and in Europe. Their music has twice been featured on NPR’s Thistle & Shamrock music program. All three have played in numerous musical groups spanning styles as diverse as Classical, Appalachian, Celtic & Alternative. Mike holds a masters degree in music performance and ethnomusicology. Mike is a prolific composer and arranger, contributing exciting original material to the mix.

In addition to teaching private students, Alice and Mike have studied every summer with traditional Irish master teachers at the Augusta Heritage Workshops, The Swannanoa Gathering, Boxwood School in Nova Scotia, Zoukfest in Albuquerque, NM and the East Durham Irish Music Camp. The band has two recordings, “Edge of the World” and their 2012 release, “Crows In the Kitchen”.

The Brazenhead Inn offers guests that Irish pub atmosphere in the mountains of West Virginia. The Inn owner, Will Fanning, holds tight to his roots and has created an Irish haven through the food, the hospitality and the music.
