Sarah Burnell Band - 21 April 2012

Saturday, April 21, starting at 8 p.m.
at the Old Ottawa South Firehall
260 Sunnyside Avenue

With her spirited voice and fiddle playing, combined with the longer days of Spring, this would be an ideal concert to introduce her music to all family members in Old Ottawa South. Sarah is an Ottawa girl through and through, but her fiddle roots may be found in the music of the Scottish Highlands, Cape Breton, Ireland, and Québec. Her fiddle style possesses a youthful exuberance, grounded in her strong classical training. Sarah is also an accomplished young singer, and her new CD features beautiful Celtic ballads.

The Band has won major accolades for their live performances and recording - their first album, "Sarah'ndipity", winning Sarah the 2006 Canadian Folk Music Award as "Young Performer of the Year". She is backed up onstage by a very seasoned and spirited group of musicians, a good number of whom have won awards for their playing in a range of musical genres, and are brought together by a love of celtic tunes and having a great time playing.

I hope all of our past Lobster Supper participants and all Old Ottawa South music lovers come out for this fantastic finale for our series. Tickets are available at the Firehall, at the Leading Note Music Store on Elgin Street. Like every good Celtic kitchen, party drinks and snacks will be on offer.

Tickets are $25 available at the door or at (613)947-8894 or (613) 730-7813.
