Music at the Meetinghouse: CELTICITY!

The First Congregational Church of Madison's "Music at the Meetinghouse" concert series presents "Celticity", an all-female Celtic trio singing and playing authentic Irish instruments.

On Sunday, May 20th, at 2:00 pm, the First Congregational Church of Madison’s Music at the Meetinghouse concert series proudly presents Celticity, an all-female Celtic trio consisting of three conservatory trained musicians. Sylvie Harris plays classical, finger-style guitar and the Celtic banjo; Megan Sweeney plays flute, wooden flute, piccolo, fife, and penny whistle. Phred Mileski is Celticity's vocalist; Phred also plays the Bodhran - an Irish drum, the psaltery, and the accordion! With a unique blend of instrumental sizzle, vocal beauty, and captivating, professional arrangements, Celticity puts forth an immensely exciting and highly musical performance.

Celticity offers a wide range of programs from Renaissance to traditional Celtic and today's most popular Celtic music. Perfect for any audience, and family friendly, fans of Celtic, Folk, Classical and Acoustic music will enjoy Celticity's pan-Celtic repertoire which encompasses music from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany (France), Galitia (Spain), Canada and the United States, from the Renaissance period to traditional favorites.

The trio is at home on both big and small stages from grand concert halls to quaint chamber settings and a variety of venues in-between including festivals, colleges, vineyards, coffee houses, country clubs, private functions and corporate events. They have shared the stage with Celtic Women's Orla and were asked to perform for MTV's Saint Patrick's Day Show.

Join us for this outstanding concert! Tickets are only $10, and a reception will follow.
