Purchase Tickets

Join us for a performance by Stratford’s own Rant Maggie Rant.  These Aeolian Hall regulars are pleased to perform here on Saturday, March 9, at 8:00 pm.  Legion Bar service. Ticket Price: $20.00 in advance and $22.00 at the door.   While Rant Maggie Rant sticks close to the musical roots of Ireland and Scotland, as well as the other 5 Celtic nations and Canada’s East Coast traditions, these melodies are usually supported by the band’s unique fusion of hand-drumming, dub/jazz bass, soaring vocals, harmonies and folk/blues/rock guitar. Led by fiddler Lindsay Schindler, the band is supported by centre stage vocalist Glen Dias, who also plays recorder and percussion, Barry James Payne on guitars/bouzouki, Daev Clysdale on whistles and accordion, Rob Larose on percussion and Steve Clark on bass.

In September, the band released its third CD, a self-titled effort that was recorded at its sold-out performance at the highly regarded Hugh’s Room in Toronto on St. Patrick’s Day, unbeknownst to the musicians and the crowd.
