Celtic and Folk Music

We make it easy...


Maggie in the Meantime needs a playing space about 15 feet deep by 25 feet wide, although we've made due with less. We play in concert style, that is, we are not usually a "background group" since our show has much to do with storytelling and balled forms. People have danced at our shows, but not all of our music is dance music. 


SOUND: We need a dependable 110 power source, preferably with two circuits instead of only one. We have our own complete sound system that is adequate for all but the largest venues. 


LIGHTING: We almost always use the house lighting that is provided by the venue. The stage is in four sections from stage right to left - Singer/Guitarist, Drummer, Fiddler, and Keyboard/Piper.


A NOTE ON VOLUME: We maintain a volume necessary to hear all the music in all parts of the performance venue. We do not push the volume up for effect.


DRESSING ROOM: A small, secure, room with one mirror. 


STAGE MANAGER: Someone who is with the venue to cue us on start times, both at beginning and intermission, and who will operate the running lights.
