The Brewer Performing Arts Center and Brewer Music Association are pleased to present the 4th Annual Celtic Music Event on Sunday, October 23rd at 1pm. Performers this year are Chris Gary and Friends, and Twisted Strings.
Story continues below advertisement.
Twisted Strings is an acoustic duo, playing old and new tunes with traditional Celtic roots. Michele Roy has been playing fiddle tunes since the late 80s and has worked with various Contra Dance bands including Catharsis, Walker Street, and The Growling Old Girls. She first met Will in 2003, and they reconnected in 2009 to form Twisted Strings. Will West has played a variety of genres over the years, but has always been rooted in traditional music. Since the forming of Twisted Strings, Will has focused on Irish and American tunes on both guitar and Irish bouzouki. Michele and Will bring their playing experiences together to create a powerful and creative musical duo, with fresh interpretations of tunes grounded in the traditions of the form.
Chris Gray performs on a wide variety of bagpipes, from the Great Highland Bagpipes to the Scottish Smallpipes and the Irish Uilleann Pipes. Each instrument provides a unique sound suited to a different context. The powerful skirl of the Great Highland Bagpipes lends itself well to stately or festive outdoor occasions, while the gentle buzz of the smallpipes and the subtle, keening sound of the Uilleann Pipes lend themselves to quieter, indoor functions or dances. Chris will be performing music from his latest CD Fuist!
This event is free with a suggested donation of $10 to benefit music activities in the Brewer Schools. Doors open at noon and the house opens at 12:30.
