Scotsman Sunday Funday with the Carter Giegrich Trio has been a Sunday weekly staple from 2-5 pm since we’ve opened. A band of mega-talented musicians sits down and bangs out three hours of traditional Celtic folk, jigs reels and strathspeys from centuries ago. Carter, John and Jackson are the classic trio armed with a dobro, a mandolin, a fiddle, a guitar and a banjo. Sometimes they sub in and out as they travel or tour, but there is always representation and the free experience is never anything less of fantastic.
More of our Celtic heritage community should take advantage of this show and the setting. After all, it’s a lazy 2 pm on a Sunday and we can sit back and watch history made. No, that’s not hyperbolic because these guys are that good. So good we had them make a video to memorialize a song in which we’ve come to love their version. Sunday at the Scotsman is about the closest you can feel to a traditional Celtic pub across the pond, sitting in a dim, cozy setting with your single malt and a good pint of the black stuff as you become fully immersed in the CG3 folk Celtic experience. On the right day and right moment it truly does feel as if you are transported back in time which kinda was the goal. Quick shout out to our pal and local bon vivant Garrett K. Woodward who knew what we were looking to do and said, “I got the right guys for you.” Damn, dude was right!
So if you want to connect to your ‘pub time’ Celtic roots, there is no better way than to cruise in for a pint and/or a bite and see the CG3 in any of their variants each Sunday 2-5 pm right after brunch. Check out this slightly more upbeat and less haunting version of WMT from these 3 WNC troubadours.
