Glengarry Bhoys to return to Homer
HOMER — The Center for the Arts of Homer is celebrating the one year anniversary of its first official concert at the center by bringing back the group that kicked it off, North America’s most sought after Celtic rock band, The Glengarry Bhoys.
The concert will take place 8 p.m. June 16 and 17 at the 72 S. Main St., Homer, hall.
The Glengarry Bhoys signature sound fuses the roots of Glengarry heritage with multicultural sounds of modern Celtic and contemporary music. Their energy and humor, which is as much a part of a Glengarry Bhoys performance as their musical abilities, brings a family-oriented fun time to any audience.
Labeled “The band that prevents you from being still,” this group has played to sold-out audiences all over North America and the United Kingdom. Celtic Beat Magazine claims them as, “One of the best concerts I have ever seen, strong vocals and a band with energy to die for.”
Performing on guitar, bagpipes, fiddle, bass, percussions, tin whistle and horns, these five individuals have taken 175 years of Celtic music in Canada and raised the bar.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for the center social hour with wine, beer, soft drinks and desserts available for sale as a Center fundraiser. Tickets for this performance (children under 12 are free) can be purchased in advance at Jodi’s Hallmark in Cortland, Linani’s in Homer, Sheridan’s Fine Jewelry in Cortland, Ithaca Guitar Works in Ithaca, through the Center’s Web site — www.center4art.org, by calling (607) 749-4900, or at the door on the evening of the performance.
