Fire in the Glen
Scots-Irish traditional & Celtic eclectic music.

Fire in the Glen in 2016 comes out of the studio with several new tracks, including "Rocky Road to Dublin."

Here's "The Leaving of Liverpool."

And now a fresh recording of our favorite polka set, "Ger the Rigger/Maggie in the Wood/Bill Sullivan's Polka."

Fire in the Glen performed at the 2016 Arts in the Park in Elizabethtown. Here are several clips supplied by John Britcher, aka DJ Nighthawk, who provided the sound.

Let's start off with our usual show-opener, "I'll Tell Me Ma," followed by the fiddle set "The Road to Lisdoonvarna/O'Keefe's Slide/The Stool of Repentance/Stan Chapman's Jig" and the song, "Reilly's Daughter."

Here's one of our favorite new additions to the show, Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic."

One of our favorite fiddle sets: "Lannigan's Ball/The Mucking of Geordie's Byre/Rattlin' Bog/John Ryan's Polka."

This one is the crowd-pleaser, "Lily the Pink," sung by Megan.

Mick sings "The Chemical Worker's Song."

Here's "Swallowtail/The Rakes of Kildare."

Next up, "The Susquehanna Pirate."

This set includes "The Leaving of Liverpool" and "Give the Fiddler a Dram/Liberty/Staten Island," as well as the appearance of an unexpected guest!

Fire in the Glen performed April 15, 2016, at the second monthly Concert on King, a new series at the LNP Studio at 8 W. King St. Here are a few samples:

"Ger the Rigger/Maggie in the Wood/Bill Sullivan's Polka"

"The Susquehanna Pirate"

"A Walk in the Irish Rain"

Next up are "The Hills of Connemara," "Give the Fiddler a Dram/Liberty/Staten Island" and "Donald, Where's Your Troosers?"

Now, we have Sir Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic," "The Swallowtail Jig/Rakes of Kildare" and "Lily the Pink."

Here's a glimpse of Fire in the Glens of long ago.

Fire in the Glen in early 2015 plows through a lively set of Irish polkas: "Ger the Rigger," "Maggie in the Wood" and "Bill Sullivan's."

Next, Fire in the Glen tackles the "Swallowtail Jig" and "The Rakes of Kildare."

These videos were taken March 20, 2014, at Lititz Public Library: "The Susquehanna Pirate," "Carolan's Draught/Sally Gardens/Wind That Shakes the Barley," "Finnegan's Wake," "Lannigan's Ball/The Mucking of Geordie's Byre" and "Wild Rover."

These videos were taken March 14, 2014, at the Hauser Estate Winery in Biglerville by Gerry at Glasswork Media Arts: "Johnny Jump Up" and "Red-Haired Boy/Whiskey Before Breakfast."

This snippet from "Mari Mac" was filmed March 15, 2013, at the Hauser Estate Winery in Biglerville.

The next two clips are from Ceoltas in Harrisburg on Sept. 15, 2012, when Amanda was still a newcomer to the band.

Not a song we often do, but here's "Danny Boy" from St. Patrick's Day 2012 at Iron Hill Brewery, Lancaster.
