with guest artists
Margot Krimmel, Celtic Harp, Beth Gadbaw vocals and Bodhran,
Jean Ballhorn, Fiddle and Natalie Bixler, Irish Step Dancer.
The program will include the Welsh lullaby Suo Gan, Morning Has Broken -the hymn Cat Stevens made famous in the 70’s, along with Irish Blessing, and Danny Boy, the most famous song of farewell ever sung. ASTER will also offer some new very lively pieces, The Rattlin’ Bog and Stuttering Lovers.
The always delightful Gadbaw and Krimmel have been crowd pleasers on several previous ASTER concerts. Beth Gadbaw came of age traveling from pub to folk club in the West of Ireland and the South of England. Harpist Margot Krimmel is the winner of first place medals in the Pop and Harp Jazzfest and the Colorado Scottish Highlands Games. Their original carol, The Donkey and the Doves, was voted in as one of Colorado Public Radio’s Top Fifty Carols.
