The Mansfield Band
Anita and the Yanks’ built a loyal and fiery fan base in the Celtic music world. With a debut album "Face the Wind," a slew of U.S. festivals and touring in support of The Young Dubliners through Ireland. This band, driven by Anita Mansfield’s bright and impetuous vocals was gaining traction. This however was not the direction of Mansfield’s voice and refrain was no longer an option from the need to make her original songs the focus. After a short letup to the Irish countryside, the work began again. Joined and invigorated by original ‘AY’ member, Berklee College of Music Alum and two-time local Emmy Award winner Damon Stout on Bass and the man who keeps everyone grounded with an obsession for time and a penchant for space and dynamics, drummer Chuck Van Haecke.
