EPCOR CENTRE’s BD&P World Music Series Celtic CrossroadsFriday, March 22, 2013 – Pre-show 6pm, Concert 7pmEPCOR CENTRE’s Jack Singer Concert Hall
As featured on PBS, Celtic Crossroads: The Gathering Tour incorporates the traditions of Irish music kicked into the 21st century by virtue of the youthful cast equipped with raw talent. With dizzying Irish dancing, inventive arrangements and bass-driven grooves, the likes of this show have never been seen before.
The name Celtic Crossroads originates from a time in Ireland when neighbouring communities met at the crossroads between towns and villages to socialize and, play music. Classically trained musicians transport audiences across the Atlantic to the Emerald Isle with interludes from the haunting uilleann pipes, cheerful whistles, silky flute and the Irish harp. The performers share their stories through signature fiddle playing, explosive banjo and guitar riffs, rounding out this evening of musical mastery.
Pre-show entertainment: The Doll SistersNominated for "Young Performer of the Year" at the 2011 Canadian Folk Music Awards, The Doll Sisters are a young acoustic roots duo who captivate audiences with their haunting harmonies, beautiful instrumentation and stellar songwriting. On vocals, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and bodhrán, these girls are fierce!
Part of the BD&P World Music Series.
