Crooked Road began with Scott Vocca and Vicki Gish in 2003 as a traditional group and spin-off from the Orlando’s popular EOWS sessions. Through the years, the session has attracted traditional musicians from all over the world passing through O-town looking for tunes and a good night of craic, as well as an influx of talented, dedicated locals. Quickly, Crooked Road became the house band for the Claddagh Cottage, performing each year for the St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
Crooked Road has been inspired to keep the traditional of Irish music alive by many of the great musicians before us, and those crossing our paths. As is with tradition, our aim is to learn tunes by ear, and pick settings of the music that fit with our abilities and various regions in Ireland. Jigs, reels, polkas and waltz’s and a lively hornpipe or two line the set-lists for our performances, as well as an occasional song from Scott and Justin. We’ve been privileged to keep the music going in the Central Florida area, and hope you enjoy this rich, beautiful traditional, too. Click on a link to read about a band member.
