Time for a Switchback to Celtic music

Image of switchback performers

Celtic band Switchback, Martin McCormack and Brian FitzGerald will be in Columbus for two concerts this weekend, June 13 and 14: Friday night at Hoover House Concerts (contact Nancy Tomei at 740-965-3935 for tickets) and Saturday night at Hey, Hey Bar and Grill. Brian filled me in on songwriting, Celtic music and how my cruelty as a writing teacher was ruining students.

Descended from the giant sloths of the Ohio plains, Doug Dangler has spent his life pursuing Yeti and the perfect walnut-crusted cheeseball. He survives on twigs and berries in the wilds of Columbus, occasionally surfacing to conduct interviews with musicians, authors, and other creative types through a system of idiosyncratic grunts and whistles. But seriously, he’s a real person whose hobby is finding interesting people and having them talk about creativity. Dangler attended the University of Toledo, earning a BA in chemistry and biology. For nearly two decades, he’s managed the College of Arts and Sciences Digital Media Studio at The Ohio State University.
