LINCOLN IRISH DANCERS & LINCOLN CELTIC PLAYERS
FEATURED AT LINCOLN ARTISTS’ GUILD GALLERY,
AT OUT OF THE BOX, 48 & R ON FRIDAY, FEB. 27.
More than 300 pieces of original art, Irish music and dance, and a relaxing opportunity to enjoy wine and other refreshments with local artists are all part of a Feb. 27 event sponsored by The Lincoln Artists’ Guild at Out of the Box, 48th and R streets.
The event from 5-9 p.m. will feature artist Madeline Kivett and performances by the Lincoln Irish Dancers at 6 p.m. followed by the Lincoln Celtic Players.
Guild members have referred to Madeline Kivett’s work as “pure eye candy to behold, really fresh and intriguing.” She is a freelance graphic designer and Disney enthusiast who enjoys painting in acrylic and drawing with markers.
Learn Irish Dance for St. Patrick’s Day
The Lincoln Irish Dancers will demonstrate traditional group ceili (pronounced 'kay-lee') dance including jigs and reels. They will also step dance and showcase solo fancy dancing. After the performance, the audience will get a chance to learn an Irish dance just in time to celebrate the upcoming St. Patrick's season.
Almost Like Being at an Irish Pub
The Lincoln Celtic Players consist of members of the Lincoln Celtic Sessions, a jam group that meets monthly at CGS Music. Friday's group includes Chris Hodges on mandolin, Elizabeth Campbell on bodhran and lead vocals, and Marcia Claesson on autoharp and backup vocals.
They will perform traditional Irish and Scottish music. Many of their tunes are instrumental dances that will get your feet tapping. They also perform ballads and sea shanties of the British Isles.
