No Great Mischief is a Kingston-based Celtic trio featuring Meghan Baloghon fiddle, Erik Colemanon bouzouki and guitar, and Ian Leslieon uilleann pipes and whistles.
Meghan Baloghspent years studying classical piano and violin before becoming addicted to Irish fiddle music. Now, nearly two decades after attending her first Irish session, she regularly plays at local sessions and for Irish ceili dances and shows with various groups including No Great Mischief, Seventh Town, and the Seventh Town Ceili Band.
Erik Colemanis a multi-instrumentalist with 25 years of musical experience. He plays guitar, bouzouki, piano and bass and has performed as a member of various folk and Celtic bands such as Night Sun, Dog Tooth Violet, Lagavulin and Boru’s Harp at events across Canada, including the Winnipeg Folk Festival and Folk on the Rocks in Yellowknife.
Ian Lesliestarted out on the highland bagpipes, and has been studying uillean (Irish) pipes for more than 20 years. He has been a fixture on the Irish music scene in the Kingston area for 15 years, playing in sessions at various pubs in Ontario, for traditional Irish ceili dances with the Seventh Town Ceili Band, and at events such as the Homegrown Music Festival in Kingston with The Sessioneers. He’s featured on the albums of regional folk musicians such as Brian Flynn and The Wakami Wailers.
The music of No Great Mischief belies their enthusiasm for the tunes of Ireland and other Celtic traditions, and their unabashed enjoyment of each other’s musical company
We follow No Great Mischief with the Dan Taylor Band (Dan Taylor and Paul Stos) will be making their Beans debut in January. We are thrilled to have their Original singer/songwriter rock fill the beautiful space at Balzac’s.
These local legends have just released a new single – check out their video here and hit them up on Spotify to support these awesome kingstonians!
Praise for the Dan Taylor Band – “His voice is like a combination of butterflies and unicorns. It’s truly magical. You won’t regret it!” I know I sure won’t!
FUN FACT! Sarah, one of the founders of The Beans, went to high school with Paul Stos 20 years ago in Sault Ste. Marie! What a small world!
