Wednesday, February 8th, 2012 at 7:00 pm.
The Old Courthouse
7 Seymour Street West

Neil Burnett (Celtic harp, tin whistle, Irish flute), Ed Chilton (shuttle pipes and poetry) Christina Zaenker (cello and voice), and Michelle Zwolak (Celtic harp, guitar, and voice) present a wide-ranging selection featuring traditional music from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Quebec and Italy, along with recent compositions in the Celtic tradition. In celebration of Robbie Burns Day, Valentine's Day, and St. Patrick's Day, the musicians will treat the audience to musical meditations on love, loss and tradition in the form of rollicking reels, hornpipes and jigs, melancholy airs and songs.
