People who love Irish/Celtic music are enthusiastically invited to enjoy the trio Crested Hens with Seabury Gould on guitar, bouzouki, flute & vocals, Liz Thompson on cello, and Brae on banjo and mandolin on Thursday October 19 and October 26 from 6- 9 p.m. at Gallagher's Irish Pub in Old Town Eureka at 2nd & C. Admission is free. Crested Hens performs music of Ireland and other Celtic lands as well as "Visionary songs" in the spirit of Halloween and Samhain. Halloween had its beginnings in Samhain, an ancient pre-Christian Celtic festival of the dead, also a harvest festival. Samhain was the biggest & most significant holiday (holy day) of the Celtic year. In old Irish, "samhain" meant "summer's end". Crested Hens plays a variety of music including songs and tunes of enchantment which invoke images and express the Celtic vision of how on the night of Halloween there is an opening between our world and the spirit world. Crested Hens play Irish/Celtic music with spirit, imagination & an unwavering respect for the rich traditions from which it springs. For info, see seaburygould.com, or call 707-845-8167.
