Catonsville Concerts at 3: Simple Gifts
- Date: Sunday, February 16, 2020
- Time: 3:00pm–4:00pm
Two women plus twelve instruments equal one good time when Simple Gifts takes the stage. Drawing on a variety of ethnic folk styles, this award-winning duo plays everything from lively Irish jigs and down-home American reels to hard-driving Klezmer frailachs and haunting Gypsy melodies, spicing the mix with the distinctive rhythms of Balkan dance music, the lush sounds of Scandinavian twin fiddling, and original compositions written in a traditional style.
Catonsville Concerts at 3 is a professional concert series that is free to the public. Founded in 1999 as the Catonsville Presbyterian Concert Series, “Catonsville Concerts at 3” is now entering its 21st season of presenting high-quality, live musical performances free of charge for Catonsville and the surrounding community. While our series is part of the ministry of Catonsville Presbyterian Church, it is financially independent of the church, relying on several grants and donations from our audiences for support. Originally the focus was classical chamber, however in recent years Catonsville Concerts at 3 has expanded to include folk, jazz, and bluegrass fusion in the musical genres presented, and thereby expanded its appeal and its audience base significantly.
