Toss the Feathers
The Depot welcomes Toss the Feathers to the Depot for a night of traditional Irish and Scottish music!
From their website,
Toss the Feathers performs a lively mix of traditional Irish music and songs. We play for pubs, festivals, weddings, ceilis and concert venues around the Upper Hudson Valley/Capital Region, living our dream of being a live, local band that’s fun to hear and dance to.
The three of us came together as a band in 2015, after having played together informally at local Irish traditional sessions and Irish festivals. The band features Amy Schoch (violin, viola and vocals), Dave Smith (bouzouki, banjo and vocals), and David Pease (Irish flutes and whistles).
We also perform a historical program, ‘Postcards from Irish Albany and Troy’ that uses stories, songs and tunes to recount some of the remarkable history of the Irish people who settled in the Upper Hudson Valley. The most recent performance of the ‘Postcards’ program was at Hudson Valley Community College in March, 2020 (an HVCC Cultural Affairs event).
