Celtic Music! The Ancient, a Celtic music ensemble from Nova Scotia, will perform at 1:00pm on Sunday, August 18, in the Centre Street Church sanctuary.
The Ancient features Gordon Phillips with vocals, drones, and percussion, and Valerie Goldin on the harp, English concertina, and whistle. They will be joined by Machias musicians, Duane Ingalls and Clifton Moser, on strings. The Ancient plays both Celtic and folk music, performing and recording primarily in Eastern Maine and Canada. Check out their music at the link above.
