Celtic guitarist at Sundance Library

 

June 6, 2019



The Crook County Library is pleased to once again welcome acclaimed Celtic guitarist and storyteller Jerry Barlow in concert. The event will be held on Friday, June 7 at 6 p.m. at the Library, 414 Main St. in Sundance.

The program is sponsored by the Crook County Library Foundation and the Sundance Friends of the Library and is free to the community. Light refreshments will be served following the performance.

Barlow's repertoire is entitled "For the Love of Celtic Music" and features many familiar pieces of music. Of course, Barlow will fill in the history, legend and humor behind the music. There will be ample opportunity for some sing-along, some toe tapping and even some step dancing if audience members are so inclined!

"In concert, Jerry brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, humor and legends behind the music. Jerry Barlow... a performer who is skilled, funny and riveting. Out of the many musicians performing today, the vast majority are skilled in either performing on their instrument or in entertaining an audience. It's very rare and extremely enjoyable to see a musician at the very top of his craft in both areas," says Scott Beach, Director of Colorado Celtic Entertainment.


Barlow's latest CD, VOYAGE OF HOPE, was released in the fall of 2016 and features music from the Irish immigration to America in the mid-1800s. His 2011 recording, FIELDS AND FENCES, was one of five nominees for Instrumental Album of the Year by the Independent Music Association. The Indie Acoustic Project, an international award that celebrates the best independent acoustic music, selected the title song from Jerry's CD, BRING DOWN THE STORM, as "one of the best songs of 2006."
