CANCELLED – Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with Celtic guitarist Jerry Barlow at Kearney Public Library
March 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with acclaimed Celtic guitarist and storyteller, Jerry Barlow, March 17th, 7:00 PM at Kearney Public Library. Jerry’s repertoire of haunting airs, lively jigs and spirited reels will take you away from Nebraska to the forests of Ireland, the castles of Scotland and beyond.
Acclaimed Celtic fingerstyle guitarist Jerry Barlow is a virtuoso musician, a warm and accessible performer, and a world-class storyteller. His repertoire is composed of a synthesis of traditional music from the British Isles and his own original Celtic-inspired compositions.
Barlow’s music transports the listener across time and space on an imaginary journey to a rustic Irish fishing village or the misty Scottish Highlands or an enchanted English forest. In concert, Barlow brings the songs alive by sharing the history, legend and humor behind the music. His expressive arrangements have been described as “music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.” Toe tapping and sing-along are guaranteed. Step dancing is optional. Light refreshments will follow the performance. This program is free to the community.
Join us for an evening of “music to warm the heart, sooth the soul, and lift the spirit!”
