MacAlum Celtic Band - Knoebel's Amusement Resort

Updated on June 13, 2011

June 10, 2011

Just saw the MacAlum Celtic Band, a central PA band, at Knoebel's on Friday. I wasn't sure what to expect, since I hadn't heard of them before, but they were very entertaining. They spoke with accents that just don't come from Pennsylvania. :) "Hamish MacAlum," (Will Kradlak) plays a lot of instruments. He started out with the violin, then went on to two different recorders (once played at the same time), bagpipes, guitar, and sang lead vocals on some songs. Cutie "Ian MacAlum" (Jonathan Pass) played the bass and sang lead on one song (which, incidentally, reminded my friend, Juicebox, of Metalica - go figure) - he was also the joke-teller of the group. "Duncan MacAlum" (Randy Moyer) played an acoustic guitar and an electric guitar, and sang lead vocals on some songs. Then there was "Angus MacAlum" (Chris Moreau) on drums - also a cutie.

You've gotta love four men in kilts, that's all I have to say.

They played songs dating back to the 1600s and they played some original tunes. All the songs were good - some peppier than others (which I prefer) - but all good. I wish I could show a video clip, but I forgot my camera. :( I would DEFINITELY see them again. They are extremely talented musicians. The only problem I had with the show at all was the fact that you could hardly understand them when they talked or sang. They asked us a couple of questions, and we had trouble making out what they were asking. I think they need some new microphones, or the levels just weren't right. The instruments were perfect, though.

My favorite part? The wardrobe malfunction at the 8:00 show. "Ian" had a little trouble with his kilt and we saw halfway up his thigh till someone told him about it. (I was cursing that woman)
