Celtic-rock act Craic returns from hiatus, working on debut EP

"Craic -- Brett M. Burlison (vocals, bodhran), Tim Clausing (guitar), Nikki Wolfe (tin whistle, flute), James R. McWilliam (drums), Jason Kollar (bass), Andrea D'Amore (fiddle), Mitch Kozub (banjo) and Eric Rom (guitar) -- made a few lineup changes and wrote new material during a recent six-month layoff. Now, the Celtic-rock act is back and ready to pick up the momentum it experienced last year.
'At every show at least one person walks up to us and tells us we're now their new local favorite act,' said Burlison, a 1994 Brunswick High School graduate. 'Many people aren't familiar with the upbeat, fist-pumping, in-your-face Irish music. Even some of my friends who are into metal are now hooked. We pack just about every place we play.'"
