“Golden Lane” is a group of musicians from the SE New England and specialize in
performing the lively dance music of Ireland in a traditional style. The band is John MacDonald on guitar and banjo, Pat Black on bodhran, bouzouki and vocals, Bill Black on banjo and bouzouki and vocals, Colin Everett on uilleann pipes and whistles, and Mark Oien on fiddle.
They also perform songs (in English and Gaelic). The group’s performances are always “family-friendly” and interaction with the
audience (e.g. questions about the music or the instruments, kids dancing, clapping/foot-tapping)
is always welcome.
Recent performances include library gigs in Mattapoisett, Wareham, Harwich,
and West Falmouth; First Night Sandwich; and for the past two summers Cape Cod Canal cruises
aboard the mv VIKING. Members of the group also host other musicians
at the regular Thursday evening session held at the Olde Inne in West Dennis.
