Fire In The Glen
Fire in the Glen includes (from left to right) Tom Knapp, Amanda Wells and Rod Nevin.
The three members of Fire in the Glen are bringing a lively performance of blistering fiddle tunes, mug-thumping pub songs and a few soulful ballads and airs to the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre stage at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 24.
Co-sponsoring this concert are the Endless Mountain Music Festival and the Deane Center for the Performing Arts.
Playing a blend of traditional Irish, Scottish and maritime tunes and their own brand of “Celtic eclectic” will be Amanda Wells on guitar, Rod Nevin on pennywhistle, ukulele and Scottish smallpipes and band founder Tom Knapp on fiddle and bódhran drum. All three sing.
The trio’s energy will get the audience clapping, dancing and singing along.
“We’ll be performing a selection of old favorites and some new material,” Knapp said. “We’ll draw from a broad catalogue of Celtic traditional music, and we’ll tailor some of our choices based on the audience’s preferences.”
This concert is BYOB with audience members encouraged to bring their favorite beverages and snacks.
Admission is $30. To purchase tickets and reserve a table, call (570) 724-6220.
