[ARCHIVED] Celtic Guitarist Jerry Barlow Returns to Kearney Public Library

The Kearney Public Library is pleased to once again welcome acclaimed Celtic fingerstyle guitarist Jerry Barlow in concert. The event will be held on Tuesday, November 1 at 7:00 p.m. at the Library, 2020 First Avenue in Kearney. The program is free to the community. Light refreshments will follow the performance.

Barlow is a warm, accessible performer and storyteller. His unique and skillfully delivered repertoire incorporates favorite traditional pieces as well as his own Celtic-inspired compositions. His expressive arrangements of lively jigs, spirited reels, and haunting airs is described as music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.

“In concert, Jerry brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, humor, and legends behind the music. Jerry Barlow is a performer who is skilled, funny, and riveting. Out of the many musicians performing today, the vast majority are skilled in either performing on their instrument or in entertaining an audience. It’s very rare and extremely enjoyable to see a musician at the very top of his craft in both areas,” says Scott Beach, Director of Colorado Celtic Entertainment.

In early October, Barlow released his fifth CD, “Voyage of Hope”. His 2011 recording, “Fields and Fences”, was one of five nominees for Instrumental Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards .The Indie Acoustic Project selected the title song from Jerry’s CD, “Bring Down the Storm” as ‘one of the best songs of 2006’.
