Tannahill Weavers

June 10. Easily the most fiery flame keepers of Scottish folk, the Tannahill Weavers have been kicking out the kilted jams for more than 35 years. Built around founding members Roy Gullane and Phil Smillee, the all-acoustic band uses guitar, flute, bagpipe, fiddle, and bodhran with the driving elan of a rock ’n’ roll act, delivering traditional and original tunes with the raucous passion of fellow Celtic revisionists the Pogues, whose retitled version of the standard “Jock Stewart” was likely influenced by the Tannahills’. (Alexis P. Suter returns June 4; Ellis Paul strums June 5.) 8:30pm. $30, $35. Pawling. (518) 855-1300;

  • The Tannahill Weavers will perform at the Towne Crier Cafe in Pawling on June 10.
