PASADENA – ColoradoBoulevard.net:
Bagpipes, ahoy! Fans of Celtic music will have an opportunity to enjoy one of the best bands of the genre on Saturday, Oct. 29, when the Tannahill Weavers perform at Caltech in Pasadena.
By News Desk
The Tannahill Weavers band has been delighting audiences for more than 50 years now, enlivening traditional songs from Scotland with powerful rhythm and vocals.
The quartet’s lineup features two of the master musicians who founded the Tannahill Weavers in 1968 in Paisley, Scotland. They are Roy Gullane, who plays the guitar, and Phil Smillie, who plays flute, whistle and the bodhran drum. The newer members are Malcolm Bushby, who plays flddle and bouzouki, and Iain McGillivray, who plays bagpipes, whistle and fiddle. All four are strong vocalists, and they combine for four-part harmony on some songs.
The Pasadena Folk Music Society, which had some dormant months during the pandemic, has organized this live event. The show will begin at 8:00 pm at Beckman Auditorium on the Caltech campus. Tickets, at $25 for adults and $10 for children, can be ordered at a link from Pasadenafolkmusicsociety.com. They also may be purchased in advance through the Caltech Ticket Office (626-395-4652) or at the door. The ticket office also can provide updated information about Caltech’s public-health requirements for indoor events on campus.
