Annual Gloucester Hornpipe & Clog Society Fundraising Concert

Saturday, April 23rd, 7:15pm 

Connolly Branch, 633 Centre Street

The annual fundraising concert of the GH&CS will take place at our sister branch this year.  This band brings a huge energy where ever they play with their Celtic jigs & reels, sea chanteys and colonial-era tunes.  This annual concert brings together members of the band from its over 45 year history to reconvene and revisit all their old favorites. A $10 donation is requested.
