All Ages to Enjoy the Glengarry Bhoys at the Clark on March 12
For Immediate Release
February 24, 2005
North America's most sought-after Celtic rock band, The Glengarry Bhoys, will perform at the Clark on Saturday, March 12, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22 ($20 for members) and are available at the Clark museum shop or by calling 413-458-0524.
The Glengarry Bhoys has its roots in Glengarry, Ontario, an area settled by Scots highlanders in the early 1800s and also home to a strong French element for some 400 years. The group's signature sound fused the roots of their Glengarry heritage with the multi-cultural sounds of modern Celtic and contemporary music. This band has taken 175 years of Celtic music in Canada and raised the bar to new heights. Audience members of all ages and backgrounds will find it hard to keep from dancing when the Glengarry Bhoys take to the stage.
Members include Graham Wright on vocals and guitar; Gaye Stuart "Zig" Leroux on drums, bodhran, and vocals; stepdancer Shelley Downing on fiddles and vocals; Nigel "Gibby" Gibson on bass guitars and vocals; and James S. Libbey on highland bagpipes, uileann pipes, whistles, trumpet, keyboards, and vocals. The Glengarry Bhoys' third album, "Rhoots," showcases the band's energy and good humor, and the 14 tracks offer a full range of emotions and diverse musical styles that define the band's sound.
The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Gallery admission is free through May. For more information, call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
