Celtic Breeze Band will perform this Saturday, January 12th, at the historic Lyric Theater on the Harrison square at 7:00 p.m.
Celtic Breeze Band was formed in 2005 primarily to play traditional Celtic music at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas. Since then they have performed at venues as varied as the Scottish Festival at Lyon Collage in Batesville, Arkansas, and “Celtic in the Caverns” in the Great Cathedral Room of Blanchard Springs Caverns near Mountain View, as well as various more traditional concert venues. The band says, "We love to play Celtic tunes with interesting backgrounds as they can be windows into our ancestral past. Often a short oral history of the tune and its times precedes the music.
"Although most of what we play is firmly rooted in Celtic tradition we mix in an
occasional eclectic tune so an audience doesn’t tire of listening to the same genre the entire concert. It’s also fun to follow Celtic immigrants and their music to American shores and beyond, to see how their lives and music were changed by life in the New World.
