$3 Band is comprised of three musicians with varied musical backgrounds striving to produce new music inspired by our traditional roots. They perform a wide repertoire of original material mixed in with traditional Irish music, American folk songs, Appalachian music, and sea music!
Now in their tenth season, Tullamore numbers among the Heartland’s premiere Celtic bands. Mark Clavey, Mary Hanover and Rachel Gaither render the music of Ireland and Scotland in compelling vocals and vibrant instrumentation. The Kansas City trio draws from diverse musical experiences and a broad range of influences, to strike a remarkable poise on the traditional and progressive fonts. Their dynamic arrangements appeal to mainstream audiences, yet remain loyal to the soul of Celtic music.
Based in Kansas City, Kelly members are loaded with years of experience and talent. Their ability to combine their past experiences and deep understanding of where Irish music has been, bring it full circle with new ideas mixed with time-honored traditions. It truly makes for a very exciting performance experience. This will be Kelly’s last performance on KKFI, as the band is disbanding after the Irish Fest.
Listen to them live on tonight’s local showcase; show hosted by Mark & Valerie Andruss .
