Celtic for Kids Concert by Brigit's Well

The popular Celtic duo, Brigit's Well, is pleased to offer "Celtic for Kids", a program of traditional Irish, Scottish, and Manx songs for children.  Brigit's Well is award-winning singer and Irish harper Barbary Grant and Aimee Aul on flute and backing vocals.  

This engaging program features voices, Irish harp, flute, recorder, pennywhistle, accordion, fretted dulcimer, and bowed psaltery. Children are welcome to try these instruments out firsthand following the performance. Audience participation, story-telling, and Irish dancing are guaranteed to engage even the shortest attention spans.

Previous performances of Celtic for Kids have generated enthusiastic praise; �. . . a spectacular opportunity for our children to enjoy their first �live� concert of such a positive nature and high caliber. Barbary is a gifted musician and music educator,� said Lynne Noel, Director of the Cupertino Co-op Nursery School. �The feedback we have received from not only our parents in attendance but also from the general public was that the event was an unusually fine family outing and that they only wish more such opportunities existed in our community.

Celtic for Kids CD
Recommended by Parents' Choice

Barbary performs many songs in Irish and Scots Gaelic. She has worked with several private tutors to learn songs in their native languages. This homage won her first place in the sean n�s competition at the 1998 Great American Irish Fair. (Sean n�s - �old style� in Irish - is a highly ornamented style of a cappella singing.) Recently she has added Manx songs to her repertoire.

Barbary's Celtic for Kids CD is Recommended by Parents' Choice (2002) and will be available for purchase after the performance. She has recorded three other CDs as well under the Changeling Records label: Soft Mild Morning, Bonny at Morn, and Brigit's Well. 

 A suggested donation of $5 per person or $20 per family will be accepted at the door.
