Craicdown describes its music as WORLD ACOUSTICANA — acoustic roots music with a high-energy, rock inspired flair. Integrating influences from many parts of the world and various genres with uncommon instrumentation, Craicdown’s music creates a distinctive and unique sound, but yet is both familiar and appealing.
Drawing from both traditional and contemporary sources as well as penning much of their own material, Craicdown’s repertoire includes both songs and instrumental pieces ranging in style from Americana to reggae-sounding vocals, from Celtic influenced jigs and reels to the music of Brazil and Argentina.
The ensemble’s instrumentation set it apart from other acoustic acts. The band features Rob Sharer on guitar, flute, fiddle and vocals; David DiGiuseppe on accordion and Irish cittern; and Jim Roberts on drums and percussion.
