Traditional Celtic music with a drive is on tap at The Belfry with the trio Kalos.

Kalos, a Celtic roots trio, will perform an eclectic, invigorating mix of instrumentals and songs for The Whippoorwill Presents at The Belfry (302 East Main Avenue, Sisters, belfryevents.com, 512-658-5205) on Saturday, April 20. Tickets for the 7 p.m. concert may be purchased for $20 in advance online via https://bendticket.com/events/kalos-4-20-2024 or at the door for $25.

Kalos features Ryan McKasson (fiddle, viola, vocals), Eric McDonald (guitar, mandolin, lead vocals), and Jeremiah McLane (accordion, piano, vocals). The three are masters of tradition who make alluringly complex music full of spontaneous artistry. Pulling from parallel strains of influence in the Traditional music canon, Kalos' underlying drive and pulse, rhythmic electricity, and swirling intensity transform traditional repertoire into a vital, elemental, genre-transcending sound appealing to music lovers of all stripes. More information on the trio can be found on its website, https://kalosband.com.

Ryan McKasson, Eric McDonald and Jeremiah McLane are masters of tradition who purposefully explore the dark corners floating on its edges. Their individual artistry is enhanced when together. In short, the sum creates a greater whole. The result is an alluring complexity, full of spontaneous musicality. Pulling from parallel strands of influence, they set the standard for traditional repertoire with an underlying drive and pulse charged with rhythmic electricity, culminating in a swirling level of intensity. An air of mystery and adventure pervades a sound compelling enough to transcend boundaries and appeal to music lovers of all stripes. Devon Leger of Hearth Music says, "This trio really shows how masterful musicians listen and play off each other." Kalos' music asks to be shared live, and performance is the band's heart and forte. Their partnership stretches beyond the music, born of fast friendships formed at the band's origin and exhibited in their playfulness on stage, with organic banter and good humor to go along with the music. They create an environment of their own design, drawing in listeners without pretense. Despite living active musical lives thousands of miles apart these musicians have committed to working together to forge a new musical path.
