About Colcannon:

Colcannon presents timeless songs that  transports the audience to another time and place. They perform Irish music with panache, warmth and wit.  Formed in 1984 in Boulder, the band includes members Mick Bolger, Mike Fitzmaurice, Jean Bolger, Brian Mullins, and Cynthia Jaffe. Together they have developed a distinctive, inventive, and contemporary musical style while still keeping in firm touch with the heart and essence of traditional Irish music.

The band’s recent CD ‘The Pooka and the Fiddler’ received a Parent’s Choice Award for its artful interweaving or music and storytelling. The Emmy®-award winning PBS special, “Colcannon in Concert,” filmed at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts has aired nationwide. Colcannon has also been part of many collaborative projects — they were featured on John McEuen’s soundtrack for the television mini-series “The Wild West”, as well as on the Western Heritage Award winning album of the same name and The Nashville Network Television special “The Music of the Wild West”. The group has provided music for an audio project “Secrets of the World — The Good People” featuring Irish master storyteller and folklorist Eddie Lenihan.

Colcannon’s appeal crosses lines of age, gender and ethnic background. For while the musical focus is on the beautiful wealth of traditional Irish music — all acoustic instrumentation, traditional as well as original tunes and songs, with some of the songs in Mick’s native Irish language — Colcannon’s true message is the story of the resilient and joyous human spirit.
