A New Celtic Journey
Lumedia Musicworks closes its fifth season with a live concert subtitled, “From the Land of King Arthur to the Tennessee Mountains”, Saturday, May 28 at 7:30 pm in Dallas. Tickets are $30.
DALLAS - Lumedia Musicworks, an early classical ensemble, will juxtapose Celtic fiddling tunes with Baroque masterpieces of a similar flavor in its upcoming concert A New Celtic Journey. Celtic folk songs will feature vocalists who share an affinity for this music.
“The sources of inspiration for this collection vary widely, from the usual fair maidens and lonely isles to Cupid, sparrows and fishers of seaweed. It’s definitely going to be eclectic,” said Artistic Director Julianna Emanski.
The ensemble performs on instruments made to look and sound like those used when Irish fiddling was born. The song lyrics include English and Gaelic. Rumor has it that one traditional Celtic tune on the program, “Carolan’s Dream”, was the inspiration for Led Zeppelin's “Stairway to Heaven”. French Baroque tambourins, Irish reels and an Appalachian folk song contribute to the Journey.
“While researching this program we came across “Mr. Dubourg’s Maggot” and figured a title like that would turn heads. Fortunately, it’s a catchy tune and we can’t wait to share,” said Jendi Tarde, a vocalist with the ensemble.
