Green Flag Band is an acoustic music ensemble that stays close to the heart of traditional Irish and other Celtic music. The band features Carl Rapp on fiddle, Dave Coons on guitar and vocals, Ken Ross on accordion, and Julia McDermott on hammered dulcimer and vocals.

Join us for an hour of a variety of tunes from beautiful waltzes and slow aires that will have you reaching for your tissues, to burn-down-the-house polkas and reels that will set you kicking up your heels.

The world has ended? What's not to love? We know it's not really over. There is still a story to tell. Sometimes it's a story about how the end came; sometimes it's a story of those who survive. If you enjoy these explorations, you will enjoy AFTER THE END, book discussion group dedicated to Post-Apocalyptic fiction and the readers who love it. Questions?
