Celtic music concert Saturday at Top Hat
Come hear some fine Celtic music this Saturday, March 12, as the group Laura & The Lads visits the Top Hat Theatre at Ulen-Hitterdal School for a 7:30 p.m. concert.
Lead singer Laura MacKenzie has learned from many tradition bearers on both sides of the Atlantic, and has herself been recognized as a Master Folk Artist by the Minnesota State Arts Board.
She has been lauded as a "Celtic music wizard" by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and a "high priestess of Celtic music" by Minnesota Public Radio. She plays music from Ireland, Scotland, England, Nova Scotia, Central France and Galicia on a dazzling array of wind-powered instruments, including flutes, whistles, concertina, voice, and many bagpipes -- Scottish, French and English, bellows and blown.
With Gary Rue on guitar and Michael Bissonnette on percussion, Laura and her "Lads" are sure to present a concert you won't want to miss.
Come celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us in Ulen! Tickets are now available at the Ulen-Hitterdal School office at $15 for adults, $10 for students.
You can also call to reserve a seat at 218-596-8853 and pick up your ticket at the door the evening of the concert. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
And if you would like to make an evening of it, the Ulen Café is offering a special, St. Patrick's Day-themed pre-concert dinner, with serving to start at 5 p.m.
The menu features corned beef and cabbage, with boiled potatoes, or a pork roast dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy.
Reservations are not required.
