As part of a summer series of music, the Marianna Black Library is proud to present the premier Celtic band of the Smokys on Thursday, June 30th, at 7:00PM.
Join Bean Sidhe (pronounced: ban-shee) for a lively evening of traditional music from the British Isles. The group began as a means for members to explore the connections linking traditional music from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales with its contemporary American counterparts, especially in the bluegrass, country, and folk genres. The band currently has four members: David Russell, guitar, banjo, Irish bouzouki, and mandolin; Amanda Burts plays recorder and accordion; Ralph Murphy, who is a classically trained baritone, sings, plays bodhran (Irish drum) and guitar; and rounding out the group is Karin Lyle, a professional musician from Waynesville, plays harp and violin.
The Friends of the Marianna Black Library will be there to provide light snacks and refreshments, as well. This program is free and open to area residents and visitors. Please join us for an evening of good music on the front lawn of the Marianna Black Library. The library is located in Downtown Bryson City at the corner of Academy and Rector. For more information or driving directions call the library at (828) 488-3030.
