Ringing in the Holidays with the all-time favorite Celtic Consort
Sunday, December 2 at 6 PM
Described by The Washington Post as “a Washington institution…”, Linn Barnes and Allison Hampton’s rare combination of styles and instrumentation serves to create concerts and recordings, which are multidimensional and accessible to a wide variety of audiences.
The program will include music from Renaissance Europe, Celtic Ireland and Spain, American Blues of Mississippi John Hurt and, of course, a delightful gathering of music for the Season. Allison and Linn will perform a selection of airs for Celtic Harp and Harp-Guitar, an astounding, lush and and highly textured combination of very unusual instruments. Robert Aubry Davis and Linn Barnes will perform a rendition of Dylan Thomas’s charming, ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’. Robert will read selections from the poetry of Langston Hughes, which Linn will accompany on the Harp-Guitar.
