The Tannahill Weavers will give an exciting concert. We know because they have delighted the audiences at three prior shows for us at Caltech, most recently in 2018. This band of Scots has won enthusiastic fans for more than 50 years by blending the beauty of traditional Celtic melodies with the power of modern rhythms and strong vocals. Check out a sampling of performance videos: a ballad, a jig and one of their own fine songs, The Big Ships.
Two of the band’s original members – Roy Gullane on guitar and Phil Smillie on flute, whistles and bodhran – now perform with Malcolm Bushby on fiddle and bouzouki and Iain MacGillivray on pipes, whistles and fiddle. Their concerts demonstrate the rich musical heritage of the Celtic people. Their diverse repertoire spans centuries with fiery instrumentals, topical songs, ballads and lullabies.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children. They are available in advance from the Caltech Ticket Office at (626) 395-4652, or you can purchase tickets online. Tickets may also be purchased at the door on the evening of the concert.
PLEASE NOTE — Caltech is no longer requiring masks and proof of vaccination for attending concerts on campus.
