The Selkie Girls
Celebrating the enchanting music of the Celtic tradition, The Selkie Girls performs at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 17, at the Allen Public Library, 300 N. Allen Dr. Free. With a repertoire including ancient laments, contemporary ballads, traditional Irish tunes, Scottish Gaelic folk songs, and a few foot-stomping jigs and reels, there's never a dull moment.
Irish dancer Jason Purcell takes the stage with rocket-speed leg and foot movements. A former Allen High School student, Jason was the champion for the Irish Regional Dancing Competition 2012 and 2013.
The three women and three men in The Selkie Girls hail from diverse backgrounds but this collaboration offers a fresh approach to traditional Scottish and Irish music.
The Selkie Girls recently released third CD, Pirate Queen, has received rave reviews. Call 214-509-4911 for details.
Sponsored by the Allen Public Library, the program is free.
