Botanical Roots: Brave the Sea (Celtic Punk)

Friday, August 30, 8:30 pm

Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St.

This premier group set sail from Ohio as a pirate-themed punk rock band in 2015. Since then, Brave the Sea evolved and additional members joined to form their signature sound of Celtic Rock. A combination of anthemic tunes, high-energy performances, and use of traditional folk instruments gives them a stage aesthetic that is hard to rival.

The audience is sure to have a blast dancing to riffs that spark them to sing along, “Hey ho!” www.bravetheseaband.com The 2019 Botanical Roots series is sponsored by Fort Wayne Metals, PBS39, Mad Anthony Brewing Company, ProFed Credit Union, US93.3, Whatzup, 96.3 XKE, Hilton Fort Wayne at the Grand Wayne Center and Sweetwater.
