Lehigh Valley Celtic duo, Fig for a Kiss, is sure to get you out of your seat, and doing a little jig at your favorite bar! Fig for a Kiss band members include violinist, Casey McGinty and guitarist, Seth Baliles. The two have been instrumentalists from a young age, while Casey, having been introduced to Celtic music through her Irish lineage, influenced the band’s musical theme. The duo’s unique musical style is largely accepted in our melting pot of a community; there is a prominent Celtic presence here, that is celebrated yearly at the Celtic Classic. Casey and Seth have performed at many venues throughout the valley and surrounding areas, including: Hotel Bethlehem, The Wooden Match, Tuned up Brewing Company, Bangor Trust Brewing, Deer Head Inn, DCP Theatre, ArtsQuest and etc. We were able to catch their performance this July, at McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub off of Main St. in Bethlehem, PA. McCarthy’s created a true feel experience of Ireland and the British Isles, through their cultural fare, and musical entertainment. Casey and Seth talked to us about how they met and united to form Fig for a Kiss, their musical experiences, as well as their perception and uses of hearing protection. Casey and Seth are amazing artists, providing the Lehigh Valley with something cultural, and of substance. Check out their story!
