The concert starts with Sandra Parker, a Celtic Fairy Harpist and vocalist, who performs in many types of venues in the region – weddings, art galleries, dinners, festivals, fund raisers, wherever the muse takes her.
After her set, “Sigean” (pronounced SHEE-gun) performs with Stepdancers adding to the excitement of the evening. The band was formed in 1997 in Bristol, Tennessee, to perform traditional Irish music.
