The Kearney Public Library welcomes the return of acclaimed Celtic guitarist and recording artist Jerry Barlow at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, October 15. The free performance will take place at the library, 2020 First Avenue. Barlow’s expressive arrangements of lively jigs, spirited reels and hauntingly beautiful airs have been described as music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.
Jerry Barlow is a warm accessible performer and storyteller. His unique and skillfully delivered repertoire incorporates favorite traditional pieces and his own compositions. In concert, Jerry brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, humor and legends behind the music. “Jerry Barlow's performances reveal 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, Entertainment Director of Colorado Celtic Entertainment.
All ages are welcome to this free concert. For information call 308-233-3283.
