Up River Concert
Up River Concert Sat., May 11, 7 p.m. In the 1700s, immigrants from Ireland and Scotland came to America, a land of hope and promise. Their music was a centerpiece of the culture they brought: beautiful airs, haunting ballads, and fun loving jigs and reels. Up River plays Celtic and Appalachian Mountain music passed along through generations. The music is woven with stories of the people who carried it from their Celtic homelands. The core of Up River is band historian Dan Moorefield on vocals, piano, and guitar and Teresa Morrison on the Irish whistle, tenor banjo, mandolin, bouzouki, and guitar. $8/TWC member, $10/nonmember; children 15 and younger are half price if accompanied by an adult.
