Christ the King Episcopal Church, 3021 Route 213 East, Stone Ridge, NY
James Ruff presents music from his recently released CD: The Gaels' Honour.
Pipe marches to stir the soul, noble laments that bring a tear to the eye, love songs to warm the heart, and stormy politics of 17th and 18th century Scotland and Ireland – James Ruff lends his voice to rare early Celtic music of the Gaelic world, sung in Scottish Gaelic and Irish, and accompanying himself on the wire-strung Clàrsach, whose bell-like tones rang through the great halls of the Gaelic clan chieftans. Music of the great harpers: O’Carolan, the Connellans’, Ruaraidh Dall, Denis Hempson, Hugh Higgins, and drawn from the Bunting, Neal, Forde and Straloch manuscripts.
All proceeds from the concert will benefit Christ the King Episcopal Church. Copies of the CD will be available for purchase at $15.
