This con­cert fea­tures tra­di­tional Celtic music by Castle­bay, Julia Lane and Fred Gos­bee. Their pro­gram is a blend of sto­ry­telling, bal­lads, and music played on Celtic harp, gui­tar, fid­dle, Irish flute and tin whis­tle. In addition to their regular kit, Julia and Fred own and have used bodhran, bass drum, five-string viola, cello, dijeridu, E-flat tuba, classical guitars, recorders, orchestra flute, native flutes, various drums, chimes, bells, shakers, etc.

Julia Lane plays the Celtic harp, also known as the folk harp or lever harp. This type of harp, with a triangular frame, probably originated in southeastern Scotland about 1400 years ago. There are carvings of harps on some of the Pictish stones.

Fred Gosbee's primary instrument is the 12-string guitar and plays a variety of other stringed instruments and whistles and flutes.

    This concert was a pleasure. There is something very powerful about traditional music presented simply and purely. The storytelling and music were nicely balanced.
