With great excitement and enthusiasm, we are thrilled to introduce you to our newest official member of the Hounds of Finn, Lojo Russo! We are psyched to share our talents and creativity as we collaborate and explore many future musical endeavors together!
Lojo has been described (accurately, we believe) as an artist whose "boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm for her music is apparent to anyone listening and everyone watching." And if you've been fortunate to experience Lojo live, you'll agree with us and others that she is a gifted entertainer who plays with --- and not at --- her audience.
Not only is Lojo great at connecting with an audience, but she also offers up many talents as a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, mandolin, bodhran, bass, and even ukulele. And she's a kick-ass vocalist as well!
We're also excited to announce that we'll be joined by special guest musicians on an ongoing basis so please be sure to stay tuned via our website, Facebook, and Twitter. And you can keep up with Lojo on her website and Facebook page too!
We hope you are as charged as we are with this news, and we're eager to share rousing musical adventures to come with you.
Where you can find us.
You can join us for some mid-winter hijinks at Charlie's Irish Pub on Friday and Saturday, January 30 and 31, from 7:30 until 11:30 pm both nights. And we hope you'll celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us beginning with a three-day run at Charlie's Irish Pub from Friday through Sunday, March 13, 14, and 15, and wrapping up with The Dubliner, Dan Kelly's, and more on Tuesday, March 17. We'll keep our calendar up-to-date so you can plan ahead.
Chicago (and more) here we come.
We're hitting the road for a mini-tour the first weekend of March and excited to see some Chicagoland-area friends both old and new. We'll be at the Maple Street Chapel Folk Series in Lombard, Illinois, on Saturday, March 7, and we're honored and grateful for their invitation. You can find out more and purchase your tickets here. We're still nailing down some details for several other shows along the way and we'll update our calendar as shows are confirmed.
Happy New Year!
We wish you a very Happy New Year and we're looking forward to sharing our music and more good times together during 2015. Thank you for your friendship and support!
Pete and Michelle ( and LOJO too!)
