Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., will present The Press Gang Thursday, May 19 at 7:30 p.m. The pre-show Celtic jam starts an hour earlier, so bring along an instrument.

The Press Gang, a bold new sound in New England’s traditional music scene, fuses the talents of squeezebox player Christian “Junior” Stevens, fiddler Alden Robinson and guitarist Owen Marshall into a high-octane musical partnership. The trio blends their skill and fluency in traditional Irish music with their curiosity and aptitude for other styles. The result is a sound at once energetic and sensitive, innovative and reverent.

Tickets are $15. Next up at Unity College Centre will be Canada’s celebrated vocal band Cadence Monday, May 23 at 7:30 p.m. ($15). For more information, call 948-7469 or visit unityme.org.
