Now in their third year, Burning Bridget Cleary hit the ground running, playing major Celtic festivals, concert stages, and regional events like old pros. Their first CD, "Catharsis", was recorded in 2006 when the girls were just 15 and 16 years of age. “Catharsis”, has received airplay on a wide variety of NPR stations, and was featured on Fiona Ritchey’s Thistlepod podcast of “All American Acoustic”. Their new release (11-25-08), "Everything is Alright", is now available. It has received endorsements from three of the world''s most acclaimed Irish fiddlers, Martin Hayes, Liz Carroll, and Tony DeMarco.
Rose Baldino and Genna Gillespie met as pre-teens at a traditional Irish music session where they became instant friends. Since that time, both have been first-place trophy winners at the Celtic Classic fiddle competitions. Both were born into musical families (Genna’s parents are founding members of the Celtic band, Blackwater). The natural pairing of these talented young women, backed by Rose’s dad, a life-long musician, has created a polished musical team with a lively and engaging stage presence.
The band’s name honors the memory of Bridget Cleary, a vivacious and fashionable young woman who lived in 19th century Ireland. Her husband and family burned poor Bridget to death, convinced that her flu symptoms were the result of her possession by evil fairies. The perpetrators were later convicted of murder, and laws were ultimately passed to protect women from such terrible acts. Bridget is now remembered as the last witch burned in Ireland, but we remember her as an innocent young woman. For more information about the band, go to: https://www.tradebit.com.
