The Living Tradition 30th Anniversary Celebration Concert
August 18, 2012
The Living Tradition 30th Anniversary Celebration Concert featuring traditional Celtic music from When Pigs Fly! and traditional and original folk music from Bill Dempsey. In addition to the wonderful music, to help celebrate our anniversary there will be prizes, free refreshments.
When Pigs Fly! celebrates the musical traditions of the British Isles and its evolution in America. Their Celtic aires will pull at
your heart strings, and their jigs and reels will set your feet in motion. American traditional music is celebrated from seafaring Colonial times to bluegrass, and from Appalachia to Cowboy.
Also known as The Shanty Man on the brig Pilgrim in Dana Point, California, Bill Dempsey writes and performs music that is a blend of traditional and original acoustic American folk music, jazz, and tin pan alley with a little bit of salt sprinkled in in the form of an occasional sea shanty.
