Celtic music guitar and harp duo Keith Murphy & Maeve Gilchrist at Library Arts Center, Fri., May 4th

Celtic music guitar and harp duo Keith Murphy and Maeve Gilchrist will present a concert with a truly unique sound at the Library Arts Center Gallery in Newport this Friday, May 4th at 7:00pm.  The concert is the second installment of the Center’s “Three Bridges Traditional Music Series” that runs throughout 2018.  The series is a celebration of traditional music, and is a refreshing sequel to the Center’s successful concert season last year.

The series is coordinated by musician Eric McDonald, and features concerts on the Arts Center’s stage each month from April – September, with exceptional traditional musicians from throughout New England and beyond.   McDonald joined fiddler Ryan McKasson and bagpiper Jeremiah McLane to present the first concert in the series in early April, and will return with the trio Cantrip for the final concert in the series in September.
