King Golden Banshee is mysterious in the vein of traditional Irish folklore. With a limited presence online, the only information gleaned from the band’s Facebook description is a collective interest in Guinness. The five-piece counts flutes, fiddles, banjos, the bodhran, and tin whistles among its instrumental repertoire and uses them skillfully to recall classic Celtic mythology. Tune titles include “Rakish Paddy,” “Old Apples in Winter,” and the appropriately Irish Gaelic “Si Bheagh,” as composed by the Irish harpist Turlough O’Carolan. The act’s emerald country rusticity is palpable.

Sunday 3/17 No cover, 8pm. Fellini’s #9, 200 W. Market St. 979-4279.
