“Scotland’s Tannahill Weavers play acoustic instruments, but the atmosphere at their shows is electric… They can summon rock ‘n’ roll intensity or haunting introspection.” – The Boston Globe, Boston MA.
On Sunday, Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. the Tannahill Weavers are bringing their diverse repertoire of fire-driven instrumentals, foot-stomping jigs and reels, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies from Scotland to the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.
The Tannahills music demonstrates to old and young alike the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people. These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant and humorous performances.
