CMA Fall 1999 Newsletter

The Celtic Music Association and The Madison Folk Music Society present, and WORT 98.9 welcomes

The Tannahill Weavers

Thursday, September 16, 1999

The Barrymore Theatre, 8 p.m.

The Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland's most popular traditional bands. Since their first visit to the United States (and Madison) in 1981, they have firmly established themselves as one of the premier groups on the concert stage.

From reflective ballads to footstomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits. Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries, featuring a unique combination of traditional melodies on pipes, flute, and fiddle, driving rhythms on guitar and bouzouki, and tight harmonies. Over the years, the Tannahill Weavers have been trailblazers for traditional Scottish music, and their powerful, inventive arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes.

Tickets are now available for $14 in advance and $16 day of show. Charge by phone through The Barrymore Theatre at (608) 241-8533, or find them at The Exclusive Company (State St. and High Point Center locations), Star Liquor, Magic Mill, Green Earth, Spruce Tree Music, Borders Books (West), and The Barrymore Theatre.
