At 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 22, Ciarán Bolger, Séamus Ó Flatharta and Michael Coult, all from Ireland, will play and sing traditional Irish music with an intriguing blend of modern folk influences and bold new arrangements. The trio’s energy-fueled performance will get hands clapping and toes tapping. Driving their rich, unique sound are intricate three-part vocal harmonies; the melding of their instruments – flute, Celtic harp, guitar, whistles and bódhran drum; and displays of rhythmic Irish step dancing. This trio performs with “a breathtaking energy and passion that is effortless, soulful and fun”. Formed in 2017, the band released their debut album “Sunda” on March 10, 2018. Admission is $20. For this BYOB concert, audience members are encouraged to bring their favorite beverages and snacks. For tickets and to reserve a table free, call (570) 724-6220 or visit deanecenter.com.

WINTER OUTINGS CONTINUE ON SATURDAY, FEB. 29

Winter Outings continue on Saturday, Feb. 29 in Tioga County with outdoor adventures at Mt. Tom and the Pine Creek Rail Trail and indoors at the Mansfield University Planetarium. All are free.

Explore the Canyon One of Two Ways on Feb. 29

From 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29, two great options are offered to explore the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. Participants can choose to hike the Pine Creek Rail Trail in boots starting at the Darling Run Trailhead. Others can climb more than 1100 feet up Mt. Tom to see the most scenic vistas in this area offering views of Ansonia and the Upper Pine Creek Valley. Due to snow and/or ice, traction aiding devices such as snowshoes or simple boot cleats may be required for either adventure. Experience and conditioning are required to hike the mountain or to snowshoe. The winter hike along this section of the Pine Creek Rail Trail is one of the most beautiful and accessible. Dress in layers. Bring a snack and water. Those who have snowshoes and traction devices are encouraged to bring them. Limited snowshoes and traction devices will be available if conditions warrant. For both the climb and trail hike, park at the Darling Run Access parking lot off Route 362. To get there from Wellsboro, take U.S. Route 6, turn left onto Route 362, drive 1.5 miles and turn right into the Darling Run Access area and park. Mt. Tom is directly across Route 362 from the turn into the parking area. For more information, call Tom Oliver at 570-724-2868 or Tim Morey at 570-724-8561.

CAST IS IN REHEARSALS FOR “A ROMP THROUGH THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF HAMILTON-GIBSON, MORE OR LESS”

Hamilton-Gibson is celebrating its 30th season with an original comedy written by Ryan Dalton of Blossburg and performed by a cast of HG veteran actors at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29 and Friday and Saturday, March 6 and 7 and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 1 in the Warehouse Theatre at 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro.

HG regulars and those who are experiencing this community theatre arts group for the first time will find Dalton’s play laugh-out-loud funny and entertaining.

This retrospective is titled ” A Romp Through the Complete History of Hamilton-Gibson, More or Less.” Sponsors are the Wellsboro Electric Company, Indigo Wireless and Extreme Internet, and Ward Manufacturing.

“The show is about an hour and a half long and there is a reason we call it a ‘romp,'” said Clare Ritter. “I don’t want to give it away. I want people to be surprised.”

The cast includes four men and two women along with two female directors and a female technician. “There are nine of us all together,” Ritter noted.

She and Linda Young are directing, producing, set building and “all that good stuff,” Ritter said. “Annie Bishop is our technician. She is running lights and sound. The three of us are a great team and love working together on HG shows.

“Cast members are Samantha Coolidge, Coleen Evert, Rob Kathcart, Noyes Lawton, Jim Reifer and Ryan Dalton, our playwright,” said Ritter.

“In his play, Ryan did an amazing job of highlighting, mentioning, implying, referencing and intimating just about everything we have done in 30 seasons of HG,” Ritter said. “Included are comedic, dramatic and musical moments, monologues, dialogues, games, suspense and audience participation. There is very little Ryan did not touch on.

“His original play will be fun for veteran audience members as they recognize so many of the shows we have done over 30 seasons. Those new to HG will be caught up in its creativity and humor. It is an opportunity for all of us to acknowledge how amazing Hamilton-Gibson is.”

“I asked if I could take on the 30th season retrospective and decided I would like to see an original play written for us, which would pay homage to all 30 seasons,” Ritter said.

“I spoke with Ryan who has been with HG for many years and he agreed to write the script,” said Ritter. “I asked him in August 2019 and saw the script for the first time this past December. The cast has been in rehearsals since the beginning of January.

“I trusted Ryan to create something fun and exuberant and he has done that,” said Ritter.

“We’re having a blast, laughing regularly at rehearsals. I am sure the audience is going to enjoy it, too.”

Admission is $12 for adults and $6 for youth, 18 and under. For tickets, visit hamiltongibson.org, call (570) 724-2079 or email hamgib@gmail.com.

WELLSBORO COMMUNITY CONCERT ASSOCIATION PRESENTS ROBIN BULLOCK & SUE RICHARDS ON SATURDAY, FEB. 29

At 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29, the Wellsboro Community Concert Association is presenting the award-winning duo Robin Bullock and Sue Richards playing Baroque and Celtic music in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street, Wellsboro. This is the fourth concert of the association’s 2019-2020 season.

Friends and colleagues for decades, Richards and Bullock have collaborated on many projects over the years. As transplants to the western North Carolina mountains, they recently joined forces as a chamber-Celtic duo.

The magic of their combined artistic excellence and mastery of Celtic traditions is captured in their debut CD, Highland Ramble: Celtic Music from the Carolina Mountains released on Dec. 1, 2018. This CD joins their many critically acclaimed solo albums and proves that their individual talents together create a world-class combination, carrying Celtic tradition into new and transformative realms.

These two American masters blend the ancient and magical tones of the Celtic harp with the powerful resonance of the steel-string guitar, cittern and mandolin, drawing on Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Breton traditions to create something truly unique—beautiful and timeless, yet fresh and current.

Richards has won the American National Scottish Harp Championship four times, and performed on numerous occasions for the Embassy of Ireland in Washington, DC as well as for Queen Elizabeth II. She has served as president and distinguished judge for the Scottish Harp Society of America and founded the Washington, DC Folk Harp Society. Richards has toured Norway and Scotland with the Harpa ensemble and can be heard on dozens of award-winning recordings.

She is a founding member of the Grammy-nominated Ensemble Galilel, a group of musicians from both classical and Celtic backgrounds who play Irish and Scottish airs and dance tunes, early and medieval music, and original compositions. Richards is a teacher, has published three books of arrangements of Celtic music for harp and a book of her own compositions, “Morning to Midnight.”

Bullock was hailed as a “Celtic guitar god” by Baltimore City Paper; “one of the best folk instrumentalists in the business” by Sing Out! Magazine; and one of the 100 Greatest Acoustic Guitarists by DigitalDreamDoor.com.

His honors include the Association for Independent Music’s prestigious INDIE Award with the world-folk trio Helicon, of which he was a founding member; Player’s Choice and Album of the Year Awards from Acoustic Guitar Magazine; and the Swannanoa Gathering’s Master Music Maker Award. Bullock has played hundreds of concerts as touring sideman with Grammy Award-winning folk legend Tom Paxton and was the sole support musician on four of Paxton’s “Together at Last” tours with fellow Grammy winner Janis Ian.

Admission at the door on a first come, first served basis is $20 for adults, $5 for students ages 13 to 18, and free for children 12 and under. For more information or tickets, visit www.wellsborocca.org, call (570) 724-6220 or stop in at the Deane Center.
