Rock | The Fighting Jamesons 

 

Similar to acts like Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, and The Pogues, Virginia-based The Fighting Jamesons takes a traditional Irish folk sound and intensifies it by combining folk instrumentation, such as banjo and fiddle, with a plugged-in, standard rock set-up. The Jamesons play updated versions of traditional Irish songs such as "Danny Boy" and "Drunken Sailor," while also writing and playing original Celtic rock tunes. The band's unexpected amalgamation of sounds, combined with its raw, relentless energy, make for a captivating and engaging live show.

 

The Fighting Jamesons perform Saturday, January 11, 8 p.m., at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. $10. themontagemusichall.com.
