The Festival at Sandpoint’s Hottest Summer Band is Back for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and The Festival at Sandpoint is serving up an encore performance of Scruj MacDuhk!  Friday, February 15th, marks the return of the one of the most popular and memorable performances of the 2001 season.  The Canadian group, with their unique brand of “Celtic rock,” delivers a performance that reaches into Celtic music, Appalachian old time string band music and the music of French Canada with many original tunes.  It is a youthful band of superb musicians playing traditional instruments from the banjo and the guitar to the fiddle.  And floating on top of it all are exuberant voices that will touch your heart, and your soul.  Doors open at 7:00pm. 

    Tickets are on sale now for $15 at The Festival at Sandpoint Office in the Old Power House, on line at www. festivalatsandpoint.com or by phone at (208) 265-4554/ toll free (888)265-4554.  Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express are accepted.  Tickets are also available at Eve’s Leaves in Downtown Sandpoint.   

    Last summer Scruj MacDuhk opened for Lee Ann Womack. They were such a hit, concert-goer’s couldn’t wait to have them back. Proceeds from the concert are to benefit the Debt Retirement Fund for the Festival.

    This is what The River Journal wrote about them last August: Scruj MacDuhk hit the stage with their brand of Celtic rock. They sang across the lines of Celtic, old time string band and folk. All the vocalist in this group of musicians were outstanding, but to hear lead singer Ruth Moody on the stage under the stars sent many folks to their CD booth to take more home with them. These six Canadian "old souls" were between 18 and 26 years of age and gave Sandpoint some excellent Guthrie and Paxton.
