History: One of Anya Jane’s, owner of The Music Train, favorite childhood memories is dancing outdoors at The Lake Harriet Band shell in Minneapolis. “Families laid out blankets and we ate, socialized and enjoyed the local bands. The music was never just ‘for kids,’ it was simply great music!” As a parent, she missed these opportunities to enjoy music with other families so she set out to make concerts like this available. On October 24th, 2008 The Music Train Family Concert Series was born.
Lalla Rookh, a 5 piece Celtic band from Fort Collins, Colorado has been playing together for more than a decade. A mix of traditional (and not so traditional) Celtic music from England, Ireland and Scotland has made them fan favorites along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains and Celtic festivals throughout the western United States.Starting with traditional material – ballads, jigs and stories of romantic adventures – Lalla Rookh adds fresh and vital energy to their arrangements. The pure fiddle and mandolin leads blend passionately with the guitar, bass and bodhran, creating an inspired foundation for their stunning vocal harmonies.
