Village Show Band & Its Rehearsals
The Celtic Village
Show Band has been doing shows in The Villages for several years
now. We've performed at The Sharon, Savannah Center,
Veranda at Fenney, and in Centers for many club groups. I've
been their primary singer, with seven wonderful musicians that
bring "traditional Celtic music" to life. Much of the music was
written during the 1600s and 1700s — the root of much of the
music we have today. We
feature two harps, a violin, a whistle/flute, an accordion, a
Celtic drum, and a host of traditional Celtic stringed
instruments played by our leader. Ours is the preeminent Celtic
band in these parts, playing some of the most complicated and
interesting music that I've ever done, both in tempo and
traditional Celtic language.
Since the virus hit
in March, we have been
rehearsing weekly, carefully avoiding any
unsafe interaction, even with each other; that is, until
recently when we've reopened our rehearsals to the public, still
operating under strict safety guidelines.
