A Celtic Valentine – with OCEAN Celtic Quartet
Come see Washington, D.C.’s award-winning Celtic ensemble, the OCEAN Celtic Quartet, in a program of traditional and original music celebrating romantic love, and casting their net even wider to include love of country, friends, and family. (There’ll be a lot of love in the room!) OCEAN’s soaring vocals, fiery fiddle tunes, and rollicking button accordion will have your spirit soaring and your toes tapping, while you sing along with songs that stretch back for centuries… Not only will there be love songs from Scotland, Ireland and other Celtic nations, but OCEAN will perform bandleader Jennifer Cutting’s award-winning original songs such as “Sands of Time,” which celebrates the enduring bonds of love across time and space. Interspersed with songs and tunes, there will be dramatic readings of Celtic love poetry from the Middle Ages up through the 1800s.
OCEAN’s members are bandleader/multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Cutting (a Washington Area Music Association “Musician of the Year”); mesmerizing vocalist Chris Noyes (formerly of the maritime music group Crab Alley); champion Scottish fiddler Robert Spates; and traditional singer / Ph.D. folklorist Stephen Winick.
Join OCEAN Celtic Quartet for this joyful celebration of Love, which will bring light and warmth to a chilly February evening. Read more about OCEAN Celtic Quartet at www.oceanorchestra.com and connect with OCEAN Celtic Quartet on Facebook.
