Sunday To-Do: 'Boys of the Lough'

Posted By on Fri, Dec 5, 2008 at 3:47 PM



BOYS OF THE LOUGH
4 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA, Conway. $23-$35.

As the elder statesmen of Celtic music, the Ireland-based Boys of the Lough can rest their reputation on more than 70 U.S. tours, acclaimed recordings spread across five decades and two Grammy nominations. This performance finds the Boys on their “Traditional Celtic Christmas” tour, which kicked off with an appearance on “A Prairie Home Companion.” The set, performed by multiple vocalists and featuring exotic instruments ranging from the button accordion to the concertina to the Highland pipe, features both Christian and pagan holiday songs that are part of the musical tradition of Ireland and Scotland.
