7:00-7:20 pm feating Erin Ruth Thompson & Michael Mullen
The Valkyrie ensemble consists of guitarist/singer Gail Muldrow, harmonicist/percussionist Bonnie MacKinnon Hofkin, and fiddler Julie Egger joins emcee Kristan Robbie Anderson and featured vocalist Erin Ruth Thompson in the Piazzoni Murals Room Scottish Pub as part of the Grand Ceilidh festivities.
Valkyrie mixes traditional Celtic music with a blend of Blues and Klezmer accents to achieve a truly eclectic fusion of ballads and pub ditties guaranteed to compliment a Drop of the Pure or your favourite Pint.
Erin Ruth Thompson comes to the deYoung from Tuscon via Hawai'i. A songwriter, keyboardist, and guitarist, Erin arrived in San Francisco in late 2012. She quickly fell in love with Celtic music at the Plough & Stars on Clement Street, and with encouragement from session leader Jack Gilder, has followed her heart down this path ever since.
Get ready to fall head-over-heels in love with the incredibly powerful voices of Gail and Erin, and great back-up band...but mind your kilted pleats and be sure to set down your 'dram' (measure of malt whisky) before you start doing any backflips.
Friday Nights at the de Young programs are free of charge. Tickets are required to visit the permanent collection and special exhibition galleries.
