Celtic concert in Bryson City

Written by 

art celticbandThe sixth annual Celtic concert featuring Bean Sidhe will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday March 13, at the Smoky Mountain Community Theatre in Bryson City.

 

Bean Sidhe (pronounced Banshee) plays traditional Celtic tunes and ballads using acoustic instruments covering a broad range of folk music from Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. They were organized in 1998 and are the only Celtic band in Western North Carolina that has continued to play together for that long. Bean Sidhe formed out of a desire to study and explore the uplifting traditional music that came to America with their Celtic ancestors. The band’s purpose is to keep alive the musical heritage that influenced much of contemporary music, especially bluegrass and country.  The band’s members are Amanda Burts (accordion/recorder), Karin Lyle (harp/violin), David Russell (guitar/bouzouki/tenor banjo/mandolin) and Ralph Wright-Murphy (vocals/bohdran/guitar).

Tickets are $6 per person.

828.488.8227 or 828.488.8103.
