On March 22, 7:30 p.m., the Musikfest Café Presented by Yuengling is pleased to present Graeme of Thrones. Straight from the imaginations of avid Game of Thrones fans and direct from sold-out shows in Australia and London’s West End, Graeme of Thrones is a critically-acclaimed theatrical journey through the Seven Kingdoms featuring unauthorized spoofs of all your favorite characters from the show. Graeme of Thrones is a wacky and wicked parody that the show’s super fans, as well as fantasy and comedy nerds, are sure to love.
On March 3, 7:30 p.m., Pittsburgh-based Bastard Bearded Irishmen take the Musikfest Café stage with an original and ferocious blend of traditional and contemporary Celtic music, mixed with punk and high-energy rock ’n’ roll. The group has opened for The Dropkick Murphys and Stiff Little Fingers; played with Gogol Bordello, Reel Big Fish and Rusted Root; as well as rocked Musikfest and Celtic Classic in Bethlehem. With shows that are a nonstop barrage of party anthems and dancing tunes, this is a can’t miss group.
The Dustbowl Revival, a California-based roots collective, comes to the Fowler Blast Furnace Room Feb. 11, 7:30 p.m. Merging old school bluegrass, gospel, jug-band, swamp blues and the hot swing of the 1930s, the group is known for its inspired live sets which boldly bring together many styles of traditional American music.
