March Madness 2018 

To the three members of Celtic band Molly's Revenge, "March Madness" means something other than basketball playoffs. Indeed, for all players of traditional Irish music, the month of March means making hay while the sun shines, for March 17 is the date when Irish people all around the world love to celebrate the venerable Saint Patrick. And since they can't be everywhere on one day, Molly's Revenge will once again be crisscrossong the West Coast for much of the month. Hence the nickname of their annual tour: March Madness. 

The California-based folk combo will also celebrate their own longevity in March, as their first gig happened on a fateful St. Patrick's Day some 18 years ago. Piper David Brewer is the only original band member, but fiddler John Weed and guitarist Stuart Mason joined up after the first couple years. Front man David Brewer, also known as the "hyper piper," leads the charge with an authentic and unique style of playing that has earned him the reputation of being one of the most accomplished pipers on the West Coast.
