Tara's Thistle

February 13, 2:00pm in Memorial Hall

As Tara's Thistle, Bruce and Sandy Hedman have been performing traditional Irish and Scottish folk songs since 1995. They have entertained at many libraries, bookstores, fairs, town concerts, and coffeehouses in Connecticut. They are much in demand for wedding ceremonies and receptions. They also perform many traditional maritime folk songs. In addition to singing in close, two-part harmony to guitar and bodhran (Irish drum) accompaniment, they also perform on the Great Highland bagpipes, the small Lowland bagpipes, harmonica, and Irish flute and pennywhistle. In 1999 they returned from five months in Ireland and Scotland, where they learned some of the contemporary songs being sung in the pubs today.

 

Sponsored by the Friends of Memorial Hall Library. Admission is free. No registration required.
