June 20, 2013


CARTHAGE -- New England Celtic Arts in collaboration with Patriot Renewables will present Ten Strings and a Goat Skin on Tuesday, July 2, at Mahoosuc Arts, Bingham Hall, Bethel; on Wednesday, July 3, at Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center in So. Carthage; on Thursday, July 4, at Hosmer Field, Rumford; and on Friday, July 5, at Route 27 Arts in Stratton. Curtain is 7 p.m. at each venue and 4 and 6 p.m. at Hosmer Field.

Rooted in tradition, members of this award-winning trio celebrate the music of the Irish and Francophone cultures, infuse their original compositions and traditional standard tunes with modern and world rhythms and interpretations to create an infectious energy and unique sound that speaks to all ages.

Building on a base of much loved traditional maritime music with a good dose of originality, innovation and humor, the band grabs both French and English audiences right from the first note. They easily connect with their listeners while they create an atmosphere that is pure fun.

These three young musicians, Jesse Periard, and brothers Rowen and Caleb Gallant, hail from the North Shore of Prince Edward Island and are having the time of their lives immersed in the music they love performing together.

The Farmington Maine Emblem Club #460 will perform a flag folding ceremony prior to the show at Skye Theatre. The Emblem Club has traveled from Maine to California presenting the folding of the flag. The club is active in Veterans issues and provide scholarships to area school. Also opening for Ten Strings at Skye will be the Wilton duo Silas and Nolan Rogers.
