Described as "a powerhouse Celtic band" (Boulder Weekly), Take Down the Door hearkens the old Irish tradition of taking the door off its hinges and throwing it down on a dirt cottage floor when it was time for a party and dancing. To celebrate this holiday season, the band has drawn on beautifully arranged seasonal songs and music woven from the traditions of the Emerald Isle. Let’s throw the door wide open and gather together for an evening of foot-stomping, heart-stopping, wide-open sound that reflects the band’s name.
Based in Lyons, Colorado, this high energy quintet features former Gaelic-Storm fiddler Jessie Burns, bassist Eric Thorin (Matt Flinner Trio, Jeff Austin Band), Colorado's foremost Celtic fiddle and guitar duo Adam Agee and Jon Sousa, and singer/percussionist Beth Gadbaw, described by Irish Music Magazine as "exceptional".
Take Down the Door has been described by presenters and audiences as:
“Extraordinary musicians who blend expertly to deliver a wondrous weave of rhythm, sound...and haunting melodies."
