Public Notices - The Tannahill Weavers to Perform at Indy Folk Series
posted: Sept. 20, 2019
The Tannahill Weavers, the premier Scottish Celtic band, will be performing live in Indianapolis on Saturday, October 5, 2019, at 7:00 p.m., for the first concert of the 2019-20 season at the Indy Folk Series.
Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland, and named for the town's historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the Tannahill Weavers have made an international name for their special brand of Celtic music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern rhythms. As one of the world's premier traditional Celtic bands, their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, original ballads and lullabies, and humorous tales of life in Scotland.
As they release their 18th recording, àírach ("Golden" in Gaelic) to celebrate their 50th anniversary, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage. From reflective ballads to foot stomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.
The Indy Folk Series is an all-ages listening room venue featuring superb acoustics, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Concerts are held in the performance space at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 615 W. 43rd Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208. Tickets are $20 in advance through Brown Paper Tickets, or $25 at the door. Student/senior discounts are available.
