The Elders
The 2006-2007 season of Truman’s Kohlenberg Lyceum Series continues with The Elders at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20 in Baldwin Auditorium.

The Elders are a Celtic/rock band from Kansas City, Mo., which was formed in 1998. The band has brought their musical mix of amped-up roots rock, powerful vocals, and blazing instrumentals to festivals, pubs and theaters across the United States and Ireland.

The Elders are fronted by Irishman, Ian Byrne from County Wicklow, and backed by a group of Kansas City musicians. Band members include guitarist Steve Phillips, bassist Norm Dahlor, violinist Brent Hoad, drummer Tommy Sutherland, and keyboardist Joe Miquelon. All are well-known veteran musicians having played in numerous recording and touring bands prior to forming The Elders.

The Elders released their fourth studio album, “Racing the Tide,” in 2006.

The band tours as headline performers across the country at Irish Festivals.

The group will wind up their fourth tour of Ireland in March 2007.

The University requests that all patrons be seated five minutes prior to the performance.
