Celtic Harvest at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Lewes
Friday, March 13, 7 PM

Front Row: Kathy Doyle, Jim McGiffin.  Back Row: Jan Crumpley, Bob Frazier, Mike Nielsen


The Library is pleased to present Celtic Harvest at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lewes on Friday, March 13, 2015 at 7:00 PM. Their music includes songs from all over the map--Ireland, Scotland, England, Canada, Australia, and, America--written by pop stars, folk legends, anonymous balladeers and even some from their own and members.

Celtic Harvest has been performing together throughout Delaware since 1997. The group was created by five Americans with family roots in Ireland who decided to join forces to play tunes and songs that either originated in Ireland and Scotland or that were a product of the people who carried that tradition to the New World.

 This program is made possible, in part, by a grantfrom the DE Division
of the Arts
, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the
arts in Delaware, in partnership with the NEA
