Jerry Barlow will be performing on Feb. 25 at the Heritage House.
The Post Public Library and the Caprock Cultural Association are pleased to once again welcome acclaimed Celtic guitarist and storyteller Jerry Barlow in concert. The program will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 25th at 6 p.m. at the Heritage House, 109 North Ave. N. The concert is free to the public.
Light refreshments will be served.
As a touring performer, Barlow travels throughout the Midwest, South and Rocky Mountain regions presenting his program of music, history and humor from the British Isles and Ireland.
His selections include traditional Celtic pieces as well his own Celtic-inspired originals. Barlow’s current repertoire features many pieces that will be familiar to the audience, even if they don’t know the origins. Barlow will fill in the storyline behind the music. There will be ample opportunity for some toe-tapping, some sing-along and even some step dancing if audience members are so inclined.
“In concert, Jerry brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, legend and humor 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 either at performing on their instrument or entertaining an audience. It is extremely rare, and extremely enjoyable to see a musician at the top of his craft in both areas,” says Scott Beach, Director of Colorado Celtic Entertainment.
Barlow’s latest CD, VOYAGE OF HOPE, was released in 2016 and features music from the Irish immigration to America in the mid-1800s. His 2011 recording, FIELDS AND FENCES, was one of five finalists for the Instrumental Album of the Year award by the Independent Music Awards. The Indie Acoustic Project selected the title song from Barlow’s CD, BRING DOWN THE STORM, as one of the best songs of 2006.
Music from Barlow’s recordings can be heard on National Public Radio stations. He has been featured in FINGERSTYLE GUITAR magazine and was profiled in CELTIC CONNECTION. He has performed for the Alliance Arts Council in Alliance, NE, High Plains Public Radio’s Living Room Concert Series in Amarillo, TX, and a multitude of libraries and museums along the way.
