Celtic Pipes and Guitar Duo to Perform in Cambridge

June 13, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

CAMBRIDGE, Illinois—The Celtic pipe and guitar duo of Patsy O’Brien and Dick Hensold will be performing an all-ages concert on Thursday, June 13th at Bishop Hill Creative Commons located at 309 N. Bishop Hill Street in Bishop Hill, Illinois.

A concert of traditional Celtic music, but with unique and innovative arrangements, including a variety of songs from Britain and Ireland, accompanied by guitar and Northumbrian smallpipes (a quiet bagpipe from Northeast England), or various whistles. It also features traditional and historical tunes from Cape Breton Island, Scotland, Ireland and Northumberland, with a good measure of original music in the traditional style. As well as a broad range of styles of Celtic music, this program also features an impressive range of expression, from the jaunty and humorous to soulful, led by Patsy’s warm and multi-colored baritone voice, Dick’s variety of pipes and whistles, and the nimble instrumental virtuosity of both musicians.

The show will begin with a potluck dinner at 6PM, with music starting at 7PM. A $10-20 donation is suggested.
