Cormorant’s Fancy Performs on Sunday.

Tell your friends

Weather forced us to move August’s concert by this premier local Celtic music group, but we were able to move it to a very appropriate date. Halfway between St. Patrick’s Day, 2020 and St. Patrick’s Day, 2021 is the perfect time for toe-tapping jigs and tear-jerking ballads.

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.

The group features Beth Folkemer, Steve Folkemer and their daughter Margaret, plus Joel Folkemer on bodhrán, Ryan Kozak on fiddle, and Chris Barnabei on bass. 

This free one-hour concert will happen outdoors in Schmucker Grove on the Gettysburg campus of United Lutheran Seminary (at the corner of Springs Avenue and Seminary Ridge). We’ll ask you to wear a mask and practice social distancing. The Seminary buildings are still closed to the public due to the pandemic, so weather could prevent it from happening again – please watch our Facebook pages and your emails for updates, if needed.

Come out on September 13th and enjoy an afternoon on the lawn with a delightful sound of music in the air.
