The fiddle tunes rock out the way they always have with this band with fine readings of “Lost Gal” and “Chicken Reel” from Clyde Davenport, along with “Stillhouse,” “Old Molly Hare,” and “Paddy on the Turnpike.” Of course the whole band sings with gusto.  –Time: 8:30pm (Doors open at 7:00pm) – Where: The Royal Room (5000 Rainier Avenue South Seattle, WA 98118) More Info:  http://www.theroyalroomseattle.com
