Cricket On The Hearth
Celtic, Irish, Ethnic, Folk
Much of America's folk music has its roots in Ireland and other regions of Celtic culture. CRICKET ON THE HEARTH plays these tunes and sings these songs with style and gusto, provides historical background, and gets feet tapping and voices singing along.
Burt & Di Meyer have been involved in folk music in the Olympia area since the mid-60's. They helped found the OLYMPIA FOLKLORE SOCIETY and, later, the APPLEJAM FOLK CENTER, the TUMWATER BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL, the COLUMBIA STREET IRISH SEISIUN, the IRISH COTTAGE FAIR, and the OLDTIME MEDICINE SHOW. They also play in the old-time/bluegrass group SNAKE OIL.
