Popular northeast Florida Celtic folk band Scuttered the Bruce, based in Gainesville, Florida, will perform at the 6th Annual St. Augustine Celtic Music & Heritage Festival. The group will be on the main stage from 11 a.m. to noon on Sunday, March 13, 2016.
Founded in 2011, Scuttered the Bruce plays good old-fashioned, hell-raising pub songs in the mode of the greatest pub singers in recent memory – The Dubliners and The Clancy Brothers – but with all the… & vinegar of The Pogues.” Scuttered the Bruce’s repertoire includes old favorites like “Black Velvet Band” and “Finnegan’s Wake,” alongside gleefully debauched and punkish fare such as “Streams of Whiskey” and “If I Should Fall from Grace with God,” topped off with an extra helping of bawdy originals like “Burning for Mary.” Members include Michael Crandall, Todd Osman, Tim Freeman, Chelsea Morton, Jason Catron and Will Walker.
