Created and directed by Jeannette Sorrell, the program featuring ten top class musicians has toured to New York City, the National Gallery in Washington, Pittsburgh’s Renaissance & Baroque Society, and universities across the USA, in addition to over 15 sold-out performances in Cleveland.
The programme will include Irish Reels, Scottish ballads, Appalachian and bluegrass roots music, Southern spirituals and hymns, and music from the Old Time Religion of the USA and African /American spiritual music.
This is a one off concert not to be missed! Buy your tickets online or call in to the Braid Arts Centre.
