The bed music of the movie has wonderful Irish melodies and snippets of songs, but the Gobs will give you the words, in the order presented in the movie, and string them together with the dialogue and one-liners that make the movie so endearing. Other Irish favorites that reflect the storyline will also be incorporated into the program. This will be a fun and entertaining evening filled with storytelling songs, audience participation, Irish history and poems linked together with humor and antics.
It will be fun if you know the movie and fun if you don't! The songs tell stories and the stories have universal themes so they appeal to all cultural backgrounds. It’s that simple (but if you want to be a part of the banter or have a refresher, find some time to watch the dvd before the concert!).
Gobs O’Phun is a family band, Denis Sullivan and his brother-in-law Martin Lambuth. They accompany themselves with guitar, bodhran, and the awe-inspiring “Bagmonica,” which you have to see to believe.
The Gobs will be joined by an extraordinary musician, Peggy Fasing on violin and piano. Peggy has performed with the Denver Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Boulder Philharmonic, Denver Chamber and numerous others. Her ensembles have performed for Broadway stars, Hollywood celebrities and recording artists, yet she lowers her standards to play with the likes of these two goobers because they’re so much fun!
This special presentation may never come around again as Gobs O’Phun is celebrating their 19th year, so be sure to get your tickets early and often!
