Things might GET UGLY...
Six years ago five local Edmonton artists banded together in a common cause to celebrate the musical heritage of Ireland, Acadia, and Maritime Canada. The Ugly Mugs are willing to rant, roar, sing, and serenade (just about) any place you can imagine with fiddles, guitar, bass, mandolin, and five-part vocals in tow. Classic Celtic, Irish, and Maritime standards are essential; however, one must expect a few rousing originals and some gems dredged up from the salty nets of Eastern Canada or squeezed from the soggy shores of Ireland. The Ugly Mugs bring a little light, a little laughter, and a whole lot of liveliness wheresoever they go. Beannachtai!
