Northern Gael to perform a powerful blast of traditional Irish & Scottish music: Concert at the St. Mane Theatre


Tue, Mar 5th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Minn. – The stage at the St. Mane Theatre will come alive with the songs, music and traditional dance steps of the Irish and Scottish countrysides in a performance by Northern Gael on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. Ross Sutter (voice, guitar, bodhrán, button accordion) and Laura MacKenzie (wooden flutes, whistles, concertina, various bagpipes,voice) have performed together for many years as Ross & MacKenzie. Joined by fiddler/sean-nós dancer Danielle Enblom, they become Northern Gael, a powerful blast of traditional music and dance! All members of Northern Gael have learned the arts of Irish and Scottish music and dance from noted tradition-bearers on both sides of the Atlantic, and continue to build their skills, repertoire and collaborations. The concert will feature a wide range of music – from lovely trio performances of beautiful ballads to vigorous sets of dance tunes and nimble steps – the vibrant traditions of Ireland, Scotland and Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.



Concert tickets are $15 / $12 LAC member, available in advance at Lanesboro Arts Center, 507-467-2446 (gallery hours Tues-Sat 10-5), or at the St. Mane the night of performance. The St. Mane Theatre, at 206 Parkway Ave N., is handicapped accessible.



This activity is made possible in part by a grant provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature from the State’s general fund and its arts and cultural heritage fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.



The concert is presented by the Lanesboro Arts Center, serving the community as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages.
