Poor Man’s Gambit

July 11, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Poor Man’s Gambit is a trio of traditional artists comprised of Corey Purcell, Federico Betti, and Deirdre Lockman.

Initially formed as a pickup band in 2015, the trio quickly realized that their combination of musical styles was worth pursuing as a more permanent venture, as they are set apart by not only offering a varied array of instrumental combinations, but also by including dance.

Building on their roots as traditional Irish musicians, the trio’s repertoire is also influenced by traditional music of other cultures including France, Scotland, England, and America, some of which can be heard on their latest release Kind Providence.
