Celtic music concert Saturday at Top Hat

LAURA & THE LADS -- featuring Laura MacKenzie (pictured), Gary Rue and Michael Bissonnette -- will perform this Saturday, March 12 at the Top Hat Theatre, inside the Ulen-Hitterdal School in Ulen, starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the school office, and can also be picked up at the door before the show.

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.
