Brass Lassie - short Bio
Scottish and Irish Music Enlivened by Uncommon Instrumentation, Top-Notch Arrangements and Remarkable Musicianship
BRASS LASSIE, a bold Minnesota-based band, combines traditional tunes, songs and style with dazzling modern horn lines, sparking their own genre of eclectic, remarkable music. The ensemble performs extraordinary takes on Scottish, Irish and French music, traditional and new, featuring a powerful 4-piece horn section, a terrific rhythm section, fine fiddle, flutes, concertina, pipes and vocals, adding a complement of percussive dance for special venues. Their smart, joyous horn arrangements are by top notch jazz arranger Peter Enblom, plus some great band arrangements from Dr. David Milne. BRASS LASSIE released their debut studio album Fall 2018, receiving significant airplay.
Some notable recent performances have been at McNally Smith concert Hall, The Celtic Junction Arts Center (St. Paul, MN), The Irish Fair of Minnesota, The Rock Bend Folk Festival, The International Vintage Band Festival, Icehouse, and a major stage at the Minnesota State Fair.
