A haunting instrument with an Irish pedigree, Uilleann pipes have never sounded better than when played by expert Eric Olson. He presents this fascinating concert on the bagpipes that are akin to the Scottish pipes that we all know so well. Uilleann pipes have a greater tonal and octave range, are subtle and poetic enough to play indoors, and are usually played sitting down. Because of the bellows attached to these pipes, the musician can speak and sing while the instrument is played. Don’t miss this rare chance to hear the wistful music of the Uilleann pipes floating through our great hall.

Acclaimed Celtic guitarist Jerry Barlow is a virtuoso musician, a warm and accessible performer, and a world-class storyteller. His repertoire is composed of a synthesis of traditional music from the British Isles and his own original Celtic-inspired compositions. Barlow’s music transports the listener across time and space on an imaginary journey to a rustic Irish fishing village, the misty Scottish Highlands or an enchanted English forest.
Surprisingly inspired by the guitar playing of Slash, Jon Sousa began rocking on the guitar at the age of 11. His musical journey soon took him to the extremes of rock and metal, but not before a radical left turn into the world of electronic dance music production. After moving to Colorado in 2003, Jon fell deeply in love with traditions of fingerstyle guitar.
