The ArtsCenter’s perennial favorite (this will be their 26th time here at The ArtsCenter!), the Tannahill Weavers have spent a half-century as Scotland’s premiere folk band, combining traditional melodies with driving rhythmic accompaniment and rich vocals to win fans beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes. Celebrating their golden anniversary, they show no signs of slowing down. In 2014 the band was joined by innovative piper Lorne MacDougall, who has arranged and performed pipes for many projects including the Disney Pixar movie Brave and Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon 2. Firmly established as one of the premier Celtic groups on the concert stage, they bring their enthusiasm and lively spirits to material that ranges from reflective ballads to foot-stomping reels and jigs.
Due to the spread of the Delta Variant starting October 1, 2021, The ArtsCenter will be requiring proof of vaccination and masks (as per state-mandate) for anyone who attends our ArtSchool classes and in-person performances. This was not an easy decision to make however as a leading community organization, The ArtsCenter has a responsibility to the whole community and feel this mandate is the most sensible safety measure.
