The Macs:Zydeco-Roots Rock-Americana-Old Time Dance… all in one band

Sunday, Dec 9, 4 - 6 PM

All are welcome!

The MacGillicuddies have been playing zydeco, roots rock, Americana, and electrified old-time dance numbers since 1999. In their heyday, the Macs played as many as 30-40 shows a year in Tompkins County as well as throughout Upstate New York, and Pennsylvania and down into West Virginia, appearing at regional music festivals including the Fingerlakes Grassroots Festival, the Blue Heron Festival, Musefest and others. The MacGillicuddy members are now flung far and wide, but occasionally get together for a rare as hen's teeth reunion, of which this is one. The MacGillicuddies are  Albert Capista (guitar, vocals, sax, percussion), Amy Guptill (bass), Thor Oechsner (accordion and vocals), Emelie Peine (rubboard, trombone and vocals), Kai Schafft (banjo, guitar, and vocals), Mark Taylor (drums), and Eric Yettru (guitar and vocals). Join us for a high energy zydeco infused throwdown!
