“Nothing short of spellbinding. . .” – The Washington Post
The ancient Irish festival of Beltane (May Day) signaled the end of winter and the coming of summer. Come hear Washington, D.C.’s award-winning Celtic ensemble, the OCEAN Celtic Quartet, in a program of traditional and original music celebrating the return of the Sun and the greening of the land. OCEAN’s soaring vocals, fiery fiddle tunes, and rollicking button accordion will have your heart swelling and your toes tapping, while you sing along with songs that stretch back for centuries. . . Songs of Love, Lust, and everything in between. There will be a special guest appearance by the ancient Green Man, also known as Jack-in-the-Green!
OCEAN’s members are bandleader/multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Cutting (Washington Area Music Association’s “Musician of the Year”); vocalist Lisa Moscatiello (whose voice Billboard Magazine called “one of the most gorgeous vocal instruments in all of folk-tinged pop”); champion Scottish fiddler Andrew Dodds; and traditional singer/Ph.D. folklorist Stephen Winick.
Join us for this joyful celebration to mark the end of the cold and dark, and the return of the light and warmth. If you didn’t have Spring Fever when you came, you’ll definitely catch it by the time this concert is over! Read more about OCEAN Celtic Quartet at www.oceanorchestra.com
