Like a fine blend of the best Highland and hillbilly malts, Occasional Pudding deliver sweet sounds with a smooth aftertaste. Their repertoire spans continents and centuries, from traditional Irish and Atlantic Canadian to vintage rock to country and bluegrass classics. Jules Sisk plays fiddle and mandolin, Dan Arnott is on banjo, Mike Berrigan revels in the acoustic properties of everything from suitcases to kitchen counter-tops but will be playing bodhran and other percussion instruments at Celtfest. All three contribute vocals, and the Pudding’s bass guitarist Pat Edwards, and Zac Brydges, with his guitar and bagpipes, complete the quintet. Call it céilidh, call it hoedown, the band serves up music that is sure to please discerning palates and get you on your feet.
