Tickets are $18 in advance, $22 at the door, available at Soulsha brings together bagpipes and fiddle from Scotland, sabar drumming from Senegal, trumpet, saxophone, and a tight rhythm section for a mind-bending, high-energy, danceable show. The band came together in the thriving multi-cultural music scene of Boston, through chance meetings and connections. They have brought audiences to their feet at local festivals ranging from Outside the Box Boston and Wake Up the Earth, to Glasgowlands Highland Games and Boston Celtic Music Festival. Each of the members is deeply grounded in their own tradition, but they share a love for musical exploration and breaking down boundaries. “Being able to come from such different angles and put that experiment in front of an audience is really thrilling,” says founding member Elias Alexander (vocals, bagpipes). “Every show we get to watch people’s habitual associations vanish, until nothing is left but the pure joy of the music. No more separation.” World-renowned Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser had this to say about the group: “Multi-talented and visionary, Soulsha is more than a fresh breeze blowing; it’s a tsunami of hope and high energy intercultural awareness washing onto our shores just when we need it. DANCE and ACT now!” The backroom at the Burren, a legendary Irish pub that has hosted many world-renowned artists, will host Soulsha for the first time on April 22nd.
