Once called “the Allman Brothers of Celtic fiddle bands, only prettier,” Burning Bridget Cleary features the remarkable musical talents of Rose Baldino and Deirdre Lockman, who lead the band with high-energy and tightly woven harmonies in both fiddle and vocals. The driving rhythm and bass end is supplied by Philadelphia native, Lou Baldino on guitar, and percussionist, Peter Trezzi, on djembe drum. Founded in 2006, “BBC” has produced four albums and played hundreds of performances throughout the East, South and Mid-west, including a 2011 tour through Ireland. Their second production, “Everything is Alright”, was named “2009 Album of the Year” by Boston-based CelticRadio.net. Their newest CD, “Pressed for Time,” received 5 Star reviews and hit #1 on the Roots Music Folk and Roots charts. Battlefield Band founder, Brian McNeill, commented, “The recording is pervaded by an overwhelming air of musicians who know how to let serious music speak, and when to let rip a bit and just have fun.
