2009 Craic Fest: Enter The Haggis

Enter The Haggis: March 12 @ Mercury Lounge, New York, NY

Canadian Celtic rock band Enter The Haggis was the final band to take the stage Thursday; bringing opening night of this year's Craic Fest to a spirited end. The band, Trevor Lewington (guitar/vocals), Brian Buchanan (vocals/fiddle/keyboards/guitar), Craig Downie (bagpipes/harmonica/whistle/vocals), Mark Abraham (bass/vocals) and James Campbell (drums) showed that you can indeed rock out with a fiddle and bagpipes and they did it effortlessly. I would think you were made of stone if you didn't in some way move your body to the music while they were playing. They're definitely a band to see live.
