The Earlville Opera House is pleased to host an evening with Welsh Celtic favorites Calan, October 1 at 8 PM.
Fiddles, guitar, accordion, bagpipes and step dancing explode into life with Calan! Infectious guitar rhythms and high voltage routines give way to beautiful and haunting songs, mixing traditional Welsh melodies and brand new original material. The quintet of young musicians gives a fresh and vibrant sound to traditional Welsh music, playing to big audiences and rave reviews at concerts and festivals around Britain and Europe.
The group, who’ve raised some eyebrows with a deliberate policy of eye-catching clothes and presentation, despite the ancient roots of their music, see themselves as a new generation of ambassadors, striving to take their new sound to new audiences, while raising the profile of Welsh traditional music on an international level. With their unique instrumental blend of accordion, fiddle, guitar, Welsh pipes, Welsh harp and the percussive sound of the Welsh clogs, Calan have certainly found their musical niche and their plan is to continue to delight audiences far and wide!
Calan performs Saturday October 1. Doors open at 7:30, show begins at 8 PM. Tickets are $20 general admission, $18 members, and $10 for students and children (under 18), with premiums applying in the first 4 rows of seating. The Earlville Opera House is wheelchair-accessible with a ramp and a lift. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 315-691-3550 or visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com.
