Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at this concert by the Howling Gaels, a Celtic band based in Washington. The group features two soloists: Caridwen Irvine-Spatz, who plays the fiddle and sings in Gaelic, French, and English, and Liz Dreisbach, who plays the tin whistle and clarinet. They are accompanied by Eugene Jablonsky on the double bass; Greg Spatz on the bouzouki (similar to a mandolin); and Jeff McMurtery playing traditional Irish percussion instruments, such as the bodhrán (frame drum) and cajon (box percussion instrument). Playing a mix of traditional Irish songs and Celtic music from Scotland, England, Brittany, and Canada, expect to hear lovely airs on the tin whistle, emotive ballads, and dynamic jigs and reels.
