Events for March 2019

  • Celtic Calling: Time & Maggie

    March 02, 2019 — Charleston, Kanawha

    In conjunction with Celtic Calling our regularly scheduled musical event will be Tim & Maggie!

    Tim & Maggie play instrumental folk music. They grew up with it; they have studied it and have traveled throughout the United States, England, Scotland and France looking for it. They teach music professionally, in and around Athens, WV, work on instruments every day and play music in their spare time. They contribute their time and music to the local scene partly in hope that young people will get involved in music and the arts and find more joy in their lives and their communities. Their instruments are flutes, bagpipes, whistles, frets and voice. Wherever they play, people are charmed by their wit and compelling melodies. They are in demand all over Southern WV and neighboring States for playing at restaurants, weddings, college programs, open mikes and local festivals. At last years Celtic Calling, Tim gave a popular travelogue presentation on tracing his families roots in Orkney at the Library.
