FREMONT – The Keene Memorial Library is pleased to once again welcome acclaimed Celtic guitarist and storyteller Jerry Barlow in Concert. The event will be held on Saturday, July 13th at 2:00 PM at the Library, 1030 N. Broad in Fremont. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Keene Memorial Library and is free to the community. Light refreshments will be served following the performance.
Barlow’s current repertoire features many pieces that will be familiar to the audience. Of course, Barlow will fill in the history, legend and humor behind the music. There will be ample opportunity for some sing-along, some toe tapping and even some step dancing if audience members are so inclined!
“In concert, Jerry brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, humor, and legends behind the music. “Jerry Barlow … a performer who is skilled, funny and riveting. Out of the many musicians performing today, the vast majority are skilled in either performing on their instrument or in entertaining an audience. It’s very rare and extremely enjoyable to see a musician at the very top of his craft in both areas,” says Scott Beach, Director of Colorado Celtic Entertainment.
Music from all of Barlow’s recordings can be heard regularly on National Public Radio stations. He has been featured in Fingerstyle Guitar magazine, and was profiled in the Celtic Connection. He has performed in the Gates Auditorium for the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music, the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts, and is a favorite of High Plains Public Radio’s Living Room Concert Series in Amarillo, TX.
