Castlebay; Bygone Ballads of Maine
June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Castlebay has been musically weaving together the heritage of New England and the Celtic lands since 1987. Members Julia Lane and Fred Gosbee have loved and researched traditional music for most of their lives and blend history, legend and experience into their personable performance style. Their concerts feature poignant ballads sung in Lane’s ethereal soprano and Gosbee’s rich baritone interspersed with joyous dance tunes played on Celtic harp, guitar, fiddle and tin whistle. Castlebay treats the audience to a musical journey through time and across the Atlantic. The duo also presents special theme concerts on various aspects of Celtic lore, nautical life, or Colonial America.
Enjoy an evening of listening to maritime songs from Julia’s upcoming book of traditional Maine songs collected in the early 20th century.
Tickets are $20.00 and can be found at bangorceltic.org
