Album Notes
Ha’penny Bridge is a Northern California Celtic music band comprised of several musicians from the Chico, California area. Its dynamic, vocal-driven sound has been described aptly as “California Celtic” due to the band’s unique repertoire and arrangements of Mark McKinnon’s original songs, its stirring adaptations of classic and contemporary Celtic-style ballads, and creative infusion of traditional Irish and Scottish tunes.
During its six-plus-year existence, Ha’penny Bridge has garnered a reputation as one of Northern California's strongest and most exciting Celtic music bands, including one of the Chico area’s most popular bands. In December, 2008, the Chico News and Review praised it as one of Chico’s hottest up-and-coming bands, and during its successful appearances at the prestigious KVMR Celtic Festival in Grass Valley in 2008 and 2009, Ha’penny Bridge was hailed for its “rapid rise as one of the North State’s most popular bands” that has “garnered a large and enthusiastic following of music lovers of all ages drawn to the group’s powerful, ensemble-style playing and ringing vocal harmonies.”
Ha’penny Bridge comprises a lineup of Chico-area musicians with a rich, cumulative pedigree in Celtic and corollary genres. With a frontline of Molly McNally Paul and guitarist Mark McKinnon on vocals, the band includes Jewel Cardinet on mandolin, Vita Segalla on fiddle, Tom Haber on bass, Bo Bowen on flute and whistles, Curtis Paul on drums, and Tony “Dharma” LaRocca on congas. The band's versatile range of talent also allows it to tailor its size and sound to fit any size venue.
At Fiddlers Green is Ha’penny Bridge’s second studio-recorded album (The Awakening was released in 2008). It’s a ten-song album recorded at Electric Canyon Studios in Chico, California. As was the case with The Awakening, all songs (excepting the traditional “The Wind and Rain") are written by Mark McKinnon.
The songs have narrative arcs that emphasize rising emotional tides and explore Celtic themes, history, myths and legends. In the spirit of Ha'penny Bridge's California Celtic, hybrid style, At Fiddlers Green crosses a lot of genre lines – traditional and contemporary Celtic, country/American, and world - that appeal to a broad range of musical tastes.

Some media comments about Ha'penny Bridge:

About Ha’penny Bridge's first studio CD album of original songs, The Awakening: "The Awakening is true to (its) musical roots in sound, structure and lyrics," and "comfort food for Celtophiles...in the key of Van Morrison or Mary Black." Chico News and Review

About the newest studio CD, At Fiddlers Green: "Local favorite Ha'penny Bridge brings a powerful stage presence and provides killer harmonies...Songs on the sophomore effort [the new CD] At Fiddlers Green showcase how much the band has grown since [Mark] Mckinnon formed Ha'penny Bridge in 2006." Chico Enterprise-Record

"Ha’penny Bridge is a vocal force to reckon with... emotionally charged and lovely… segueing from McKinnon’s rocking Celtic originals into traditional tunes and back… one of a number of impressive “tricks” that Ha’penny Bridge has up its magical sleeve.” Chico News and Review
