Music at St. Albans Virtual Concert with Robin Bullock

November 22 @ 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Music at St. Alban’s (Davidson) will present a virtual concert offered to all without charge. The performer will be Robin Bullock, who is considered one of the preeminent acoustic masters of our time. He has been hailed as the “Celtic guitar god” who delights audiences with programs featuring Celtic and classical music for mandolin and guitar. With virtuosity he blends ancient melodies of the Celtic lands, their vigorous American descendants, and masterworks of the Baroque and Renaissance eras into a powerful musical vision. One reviewer observes that “Robin creates a warm afterglow, assuring listeners that it is very good to be alive in this world.” For this occasion, Bullock will offer a program of works by J.S. Bach, Stephen Foster, and Turlough O’Carolan. To hear this engaging performance without charge, go to [email protected]’s web-site at www.musicatstalbansdavidson.org or to [email protected]’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/musicatstalbans/ on November 22. This project is made possible, in part, with funding from ASC. [email protected] is a 501[c]3 non-profit organization.
