Celtic Cabaret to bring Irish folk music to Midwest Theater

The Midwest Theater hits the halfway mark of their Performing Arts Series on Tuesday night with Jill Anderson's Celtic Cabaret.

The concert will takes patrons on a musical tour of Ireland's history & music on stage. 

Executive Director Billy Estes says that Celtic Cabaret is much more than an Irish music concert: it encompasses Irish history, poetry, storytelling, humor, and everything in between.

He says there will be haunting ballads and stirring anthems, accompanied by guitar and bodhran drum, as well as dazzling a cappella pieces. Anderson's theater training brings interest to the rich Irish storytelling traditions in the music as she takes the audience on a musical tour of Ireland.

Estes adds that when they began looking at dates for Celtic Cabaret, they began looking at March because it is around St. Patrick's Day. "But Celtic music embraces all holidays," explains Estes. "I don't know- but hope- Jill is going to do some traditional Irish holiday tunes as well since we are close to the holidays."

The event starts at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, and tickets are $20 for non-members, $18 for members.

Celtic Cabaret is presented in partnership with The Lied Center's Arts Across Nebraska Program.  The Lied Center's Arts Across Nebraska program is made possible with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, Friends of Lied, Richard P. Kimmel and LaurineKimmel Charitable Foundation, and Julie Jacobson in honor of the 12/13 Friends of Lied Executive Committee. Artist transportation provided by Sid Dillon.
