A Parcel of Rogues are old friends who got together in 2006 to perform the music they love the best. Since then, the group has performed for formal dances, Celtic music festivals, New York and Boston high society and concert venues of all shapes and sizes including a biker bar in Queens! Calum Pasqua, Glenfiddich fiddle champion; Dan Houghton, virtuoso piper and Susie Petrov are occasionally joined by James Gray (piano & accordion) and Hollis Easter (flute) together creating a sound that the Boston Herald described as having a ”mighty muscularity.“
Local Hero are Susie Petrov, Christopher Layer, wooden flutes, Irish and Scottish bagpipes; and Paul Woodiel, fiddle. Known for their innovative arrangements and ability to fit the music perfectly to the steps of the dance, Local Hero’s music has inspired Scottish dancers since their first Hogmanay Ball in 1988. No strangers to the concert stage, they perform for Clan Currie’s annual Pipes of Christmas concert in New York. They teach, perform and direct the innovative New Harmony Music Festival and School in New Harmony, IN.
