Celtic Guitarist Jerry Barlow Featured in Civic Theatre Fundraiser
The Civic Theatre is pleased to once again present acclaimed Celtic fingerstyle guitarist Jerry Barlow for a special concert on Saturday, October 12th at 7:30 PM. The event will be held at the Pretty Prairie Middle School and all proceeds will be used in the restoration of the wall of the Civic Theatre that was damaged in last month’s storm.
Barlow is a warm, accessible performer and storyteller. His unique and skillfully delivered repertoire incorporates favorite traditional Celtic pieces and his own compositions.
In concert, Jerry brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, humor, and legends behind the music. “Jerry Barlow’s performances reveal a performer who is skilled, funny and riveting. Out of the many musicians performing today, the vast majority are skilled in either performing on their instrument or in entertaining an audience. It’s very rare and extremely enjoyable to see a musician at the very top of his craft in both areas,” says Scott Beach, Director of Colorado Celtic Entertainment.
The Indie Acoustic Project, an international award that celebrates the best in innovative, independent acoustic music, has selected the title song from Jerry’s newest CD, BRING DOWN THE STORM, as “one of the best songs of 2006.” Songs from his first CD, KEEPSAKE, were included in a PBS documentary Song of our Children. Music from BRING DOWN THE STORM is featured in the new University of Colorado documentary Learn about Climate Change. Barlow’s latest CD, FIELDS AND FENCES, was released in October, 2011, and was one of five nominees for Instrumental Album of the Year by the Independent Music Association.
Jerry has been featured in Fingerstyle Guitar magazine, and has performed in the Gates Auditorium for the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music and the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts. He is a favorite of High Plains Public Radio’s Living Room Concert Series.
Concert tickets are $10 and available at the door. Please contact (620) 459-6461 for more information.
