CONCERT: Ring of Kerry

A Celtic Christmas Concert with Ring of Kerry!

The Galena Festival of the Performing Arts is delighted to present a family-friendly holiday concert featuring the Irish folk band Ring of Kerry on Sunday, December 15, at 2 p.m. in Turner Hall (115 S. Bench St.).  Settle in for a fun-filled Sunday afternoon of Celtic music and charm – a lovely way to usher in the holiday season!

Ring of Kerry is a bursting-with-energy Irish music group that captures the hearts of listeners.  The group takes its name from a beautiful craggy drive in southwestern County Kerry, Ireland.  Its Celtic music, however, is played with a heart much closer to its American home.  All five of its engaging musicians sing and play several instruments.  From the thundering sound of the bodhran to the sparkle of the hammered dulcimer; from the lilt and rhythm of fiddle and guitar to the haunting wails of the flute and pennywhistles, the band has developed a blend that is animated, ruggedly beautiful and fun.     Their holiday spirit and delightful music will have the entire audience stamping their feet and enjoying the merriment.  So come and have a Hooley Holiday with Ring of Kerry!

The concert will be free to the public and appropriate for all ages.  Free will donations will be gratefully accepted, as the generosity of the public allows the Festival to provide exceptional music to the Tri-State area each year.  The Galena Festival of the Performing Arts is a non-profit organization entirely funded by donations and sponsorships and managed by volunteers.  For more information, please check the Festival website,, or on Facebook.
