What to Expect
Our show is visually, as well as aurally pleasing. We use uncommon instrumentation that not only holds the audience in wonder, but because of this our timbre is markedly different than your run of the mill "acoustic" band. Although we use acoustic instruments, the show is fully amplified and full sounding. Perfect for festivals, listening engagements, house concerts, as well as standard venues.
The Rattlin' Bones is the musical collaboration of Eva Riihiluoma, Sage Arias and Philip Wright. With influences from Medieval Europe to the back cabins of Appalachia, the show is an auditory tour that weaves bardic storytelling with the folk traditions. Eva’s vocals, described as sultry and powerful, combined with a multi-instrumental array create the trio’s compelling sound. Listeners often mention the feeling of being transported to another time and place. Alongside original music and compositions, the trio collects and performs the heirlooms of vintage music from Ireland, old Europe, and old time Americana. The songs range from the haunted ghosts of the old world and ballad style tales to songs of redemption and soulful revelation.
Additional Booking Notes
We can provide our own PA if needed.
For gigs with a sound system provided we require 2-3 power outlets. 2 vocal mics, 1 instrument mic. We each use an amp (total of 3) two of which need a mic, the third can DI into the board. It's a pretty basic set-up, even though the number of instruments seems intimidating.
For outdoor gigs it is important we are shaded, or shade is provided so the instruments are not in the direct sun.
A typical set will take the listener through a variety of styles and instrument combinations, with Celtic, Medieval, Americana, and Original songs and tunes being represented.
