Celtic Concert Sunday at First Congregational Church
This Sunday, it's another great installment of entertainment at First Congregational Church.
For all who love Celtic folk music, First Congregational Church has a special treat for you this Sunday, February 14, at 4 pm. joHn Kenney will bring his passion for Celtic music when his traditional Irish Band, Kennedy’s Kitchen, will perform the third concert for the Sunday Afternoon Live series concert series.
Kennedy's Kitchen performs a great mix of traditional Irish tunes and songs. They play tear-up-the-floor, heart-thumping Irish music with fiddle, whistles, guitars, bodhran, banjo and bass. Rowdy and toe-tapping or sweet and sentimental, their Irish ballads and original compositions will take you to depths and heights of emotions. Intermingled in the mix are stories, jokes, other frivolity and astonishingly large tales. If tunes set your foot in motion or songs that pull at your heart’s strings, you’ll want to hear them. Their variety of music and storytelling, with some of it even being true, will inspire you to make Irish music one of your favorites. Dancers from The Celtic Fire Stepdancers will join Kennedy’s Kitchen to add some variety and spice to the show.
Sunday Afternoon concerts are held at First Congregational Church located at 145 Capital Ave. NE. The concerts are free and are held on Sunday afternoons at 4 pm, followed by a wine and cheese reception. For more information call 269-965-1225 or visit the church website at fccbc.org.
