From dance floors to concert halls, the Syncopaths bring a fresh, contemporary spin to music and songs rooted in the Scottish, Irish, and American folk traditions. They create a “chamber folk” sound with compelling interplay between fiddle and mandolin, rich vocals, and unexpected colors and rhythms from the piano and bodhrán.

At the heart of the band’s sound are the twin engines of Ryan McKasson’s dynamic, Scottish-based fiddling and the understated-but-monster picking of mandolinist Ashley Broder. Jeff Spero provides wonderfully inventive and surprising piano accompaniment, anchored by the driving power of Christa Burch’s non-traditional bodhrán. Christa also lends her singular voice to the band’s songs. The Syncopaths are equally at home with pulsing, high-energy dance tunes and beautiful, contemplative songs. They ably stretch melodic boundaries while keeping a steady, compelling, danceable beat.

Please join us on Friday, January 10th. The doors will open at 6:30PM; music starts at 7:30PM. This is a benefit for our local community radio station KZYX.
