Acclaimed Celtic Guitarist, Jerry Barlow to Perform @ Your Lewis & Clark Library
March 25, 2014 (Helena, MT)—Your Lewis & Clark Library is pleased to host acclaimed Celtic fingerstyle guitarist Jerry Barlow for an evening of traditional and original Celtic-inspired compositions. Join us on Tuesday, April 29 at 7 PM, in Large Meeting Room at your Lewis & Clark Library for this free and inspirational program.
A world-class story teller, Barlow’s music transports the listener across time and space on an imaginary journey to a rustic Irish fishing village or the misty Scottish Highlands or an enchanted English forest. In concert, Barlow brings the songs alive by sharing the history, legend and humor behind the music. His expressive arrangements have been described as “music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.”
Barlow has performed at the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music in Gates Auditorium; The Arvada Center for the Performing Arts; High Plains Public Radio’s Living Room Concert Series in Amarillo, TX; Swallow Hill Music Association; and many other art centers, theatres and libraries throughout the Midwest and Rocky Mountain Region.
His music can be heard on National Public Radio stations throughout the country and has been featured in the PBS documentary, “Songs of our Children.” His song “Bring Down the Storm,” won the prestigious Indie Project Award for Best Songs of 2006. Barlow’s latest CD, “Fields and Fences,” released in October 2011 to excellent reviews, was one of five nominees for Instrumental Album of the Year (2011) by the Independent Music Association. Many of Barlow’s songs have been featured in Landlocked Films/University of Colorado films.
