‘Golden Bough’ returns March 8

‘Golden Bough’ returns March 8The Indian Wells Valley Concert Association is pleased to bring back Golden Bough by popular demand on Wednesday, March 8.

“Since their inception, Golden Bough has become a popular entertaining group and we are lucky enough to have them return to the Indian Wells Valley for a return concert,” said Bill Willis of the IWVCA. “They are a truly entertaining group, and they have gained critical acclaim and enthusiastic support wherever they perform.”

Rooted in the traditional music of the seven Celtic nations (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, French Brittany and Spanish Galicia), Golden Bough has become a popular and in-demand group on both sides of the Atlantic.

They back themselves on an array of acoustic instruments — Celtic harp, guitar, octave-mandolin, mandolin, accordion, violin, penny-whistle and bodhran. They blend their voices in the pristine harmonies that have become a Golden Bough trademark. To date they have released more than 30 recordings.

“In the recording studio, as well as on stage, Golden Bough captures the essence and joy of traditional Celtic music,” said Willis. “If you enjoy Celtic music, a great stage performance and interactive audience participation, this is a concert you won’t want to miss.”

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Burroughs High School Parker Performing Arts Center, and doors open at 7 p.m. Pre-sale tickets are available at Maturango Museum, Red Rock Books and Jeff’s Music Shop and are $25 general admission and $22 reduced.

This is the second-to-last performance of the IWVCA’s 2016-17 season.
