Featuring the ballads, jigs and haunting music of the British Isles, one of the Gettysburg area’s favorite bands, Cormorant’s Fancy, will perform a free outdoor concert Sunday, August 23rd at 6:00 pm in Schmucker Grove, just north of Springs Avenue on the United Lutheran Seminary Campus. .
Cormorant’s Fancy wings across generations and oceans with traditional and contemporary music of Ireland, along with Scotland, Wales, and North America. Passion for their heritage pulses in every note! Delivering driving reels, sprightly jigs, haunting airs, beautiful ballads, spirited songs and good-humored sing-alongs, they feature fancy-full harmonies and soaring instrumentals that blend vocals, concertina, fiddle, penny whistle, guitar, bass and bodhrán.
Come out on August 23rd and cool down on the lawn with a delightful sound of music in the air.
This one-hour concert is free and open to everyone. People are asked to bring their own chairs or blankets, and to observe appropriate social distancing, mask wearing, and other pandemic-related precautions. While the Seminary has given permission for this outdoor event, the buildings on the campus remain closed, so restroom facilities will not be available. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be cancelled, since the chapel is not available as an alternate location. Weather-related cancellation will be announced on our website (www.musicgettysburg.org) and phone message (717-339-1334).
