Music in the Glen – Lecture on the History of Irish Music
September 18, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm$20.00
Jeanne Freeman & Dan Ringrose
Wednesday, September 18
NEW DATE – Ireland is perhaps the only country whose national symbol is a musical instrument, the harp – representing a powerful artistic legacy of music, poetry, and storytelling. Join fiddler Jeanne Freeman and balladeer Dan Ringrose for a fascinating musical journey of tunes and songs exploring connections between Irish history and the enduring tradition of Irish music. This unique Celtic duo combines fiddler Jeanne Freeman, whose playing has been described as “effortlessly virtuosic” — and singer/guitarist Dan Ringrose, whose voice has been called “stunning.” Together, they bring a lively freshness to traditional and original tunes and songs, along with stories, poetry, and humor. They have been featured on Connecticut Public Television, many other television and radio programs, and have performed at numerous festivals and venues. Admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Seating is limited.
