Great Bay Sailor: The Yuletide Celebration
Mark your calendar and plan to join us for a celebration of what we call the hidden sounds of the season. The GBS Yuletide Repertoire is comprised of songs found in traditions honored in such diverse settings as isolated Irish village churches, English pubs, the mountain cabins of Appalachia, Hebridean households, Canadian social clubs, and the creative genius of contemporary bards and songwriters. This is a Christmas that you have never heard before!
About the performers:
Great Bay Sailor performs a brash but thoughtful brand of “contemporary/traditional” folk music. The crew is composed of singers Bruce MacIntyre, Steve Carrigan and Mike Blaire; fiddle player, Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki; multi-instrumentalist Taylor Whiteside; noted Nashville strings man, Jim Prendergast. A hallmark of the band is its eclectic repertoire of maritime, Irish/Scottish and ol’ timey songs and tunes, out of which the band weaves a rollicking, toe tapping, romantic, bitter-sweet and soul-soothing musical tapestry for the enjoyment of listening audiences in Northern New England.
Now comes their special Yuletide presentation!
Space is limited. Please call 603-431-2538 for reservations.
