WADENA — ‘Caleigh’ will perform at the Music in the Park Series in Staples on Sunday, July 31, at 7 p.m.
Comprised of three musicians (Lenore Siems, Dee Furfaro, April Larson), Caleigh is a Minnesota band whose sound is earthy and eclectic. Expect to hear a fusion of world folk, Celtic, bluegrass, American Old-Time and original compositions.
Caleigh has shared their musical journey of 20-plus years with audiences throughout Minnesota and fans worldwide via the internet.
The band has released five albums on the Lily Label, each graced with the sounds of harp, fiddle, bodhran, banjo, accordion, guitars, mandolin, congas, viola, contra bass, balalaika and captivating vocals. According to information at their website, “Caleigh’s music will inspire the imagination of listeners as they travel through a time-honored musical experience.”
Caleigh’s albums have been sold worldwide via ITunes and CD Baby. Through MP3, several of the band’s tunes were selected as number one on the musical charts and their arrangement of St. Patrick’s Day Medley was used as the background music for internet greeting cards. In 2000, several tunes were selected for a Canadian multimedia middle school social studies curriculum resource called Living Histories: Founding of America. In 2013, Caleigh was the featured band for the radio show, “Minnesota Center Stage.” They’ve also been featured on Lakeland Public TV’s, “Backroads.”
