Free Concert: The Softer Side of Celtic

The Friends of the Milford Town Library invite you to join Irish musician Jeff Snow for a free concert on Monday, March 11 at 7 p.m. in the Granite & Quarry Rooms. 

The Softer Side of Celtic combines the music, stories and a wee bit of history from Scotland, Ireland and England. The audience is encouraged to participate! There will be singing, laughing, clapping and perhaps a bit of foot stomping. Questions and input from the audience are encouraged and become part of the event. 

This 90-minute concert includes music on the guitar, bouzouki and autoharp. Jeff Snow grew up as the son of a drummer in a Bagpipe band and in a home where older Celtic songs were the everyday sounds and his love of the genre has deepened over the years, performing all over the Northeast.

Tickets are not required and all ages are welcome to attend this event.
