The Celtic Year Concert
to Unity Center!
March 24th 6:30 PM $10.00
THE CELTIC YEAR CONCERT - This concert celebrates the Celtic Wheel of Time through songs, folklore and poetry. This ancient seasonal calendar was marked by Bonfire Festivals and customs that still carry on today. The Celtic Year begins with Samhain (October 31- November 1) the festival of the Ancestors, upon which Halloween and All Souls Night are based. The year proceeds through Winter Solstice to Imbolg (February 1) which celebrates the festival of Brighid and the beginning of Spring. The year proceeds through the Vernal Equinox (March 21) to Bealtaine (May 1) the beginning of Summer. Then comes Summer Solstice (June 21st), Lughnasadh (August 1) the festival of Harvest and then the Autumnal Equinox (September 21).
Four Shillings Short: Rooted in Celtic and American folk, inspired by Indian Raga and Ethnic idioms; a diverse and inventive Traditonal Music Experience.
The husband/wife duo of Aodh Og O’Tuama from Cork, Ireland and Christy Martin from California, have been performing together since 1995.
