  • Sat

    Jan 31

    Jericho, VT, US | 7:00pm

    Slip away to the "mystical isles" for an evening of live Pan-Celtic music. From traditional Celtic roots we enjoy Irish and Scottish music and Highland Dance. And from North America we enjoy Quebecois and Appalachian tunes. The Green Mt. Celts (Joanne & Terry Ranney) proudly introduce the musicians John Guay, Nancy Bakemeier, Vonnie Estes, Iain MacHarg and Ben Post into the list of performers. The Heather Morris Dancers will also be performing. The skirl of the bagpipes, the lure of the Celtic whistle, the heartbeat of the drum and the magic of the fiddle and hammered dulcimer will make up a varied, lively and entertaining evening for all ages. Tickets at the door are $10 for adults, $8 for students 13-18 and children 12 and under are free. Please come to enjoy this lively presentation and bring your friends! A reception of traditional Celtic treats follows the concert (donations appreciated). Parking is free on site and the church is handicap accessible.
