ANGELS CAMP — The Golden Bough and the McGrath Irish Dancers perform during the Celebrate Ireland event on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 3 p.m. at the Bret Harte Theater in Angels Camp.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for youth under 18 years. You can order tickets online at www.calverasarts.org or call 209-754-1774.

Golden Bough and the McGrath Irish Dancers will provide a lively celebration of all things Irish and Irish-American. Enjoy the hard and sift shoe dancing of jigs, reels and hornpipes as well as music passed down through generations.

Rooted in the traditional Celtic music of Ireland and Scotland (as well as Wales, Cornwall, The Isle of Man, French Brittany and Spanish Galicia), the Golden Boigh trio of modern day minstrels has expanded upon these ethnic styles through the development of intriguing arrangements and original  compositions.  In this way, they have created a sound unique unto themselves. 

Since their formation

in 1980, Golden Bough has traveled great distances to numerous countries, to bring their music to enthusiastic folk fans the world over.  Backing themselves on an array of acoustic instruments (Celtic harp, guitar, octave-mandolin, mandolin, accordion, violin, penny-whistle and bodhran) they blend their voices in pristine three-part harmony and feature haunting solo vocals.  In the recording studio, as well as on stage, Golden Bough captures the essence and joy of traditional music.
