Gloucester Hornpipe & Clog Society Annual Benefit Concert
Come along to hear this wonderful group, the Gloucester Hornpipe & Clog Society who for many years has performed an annual benefit concert for The Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library. This event is a reunion of sorts for all the existing and former members of the group and is always a fantastic time! They play "a lively mix of Celtic jigs and reels, American Colonial-era tunes, sing-along sea chanteys, and original songs of colorful people and places from New England's rich history. From ragtime to oldtime, the band's rollicking, friendly style is fun for all ages".
A $10 suggested donation is requested. Refreshments and CDs will be available for sale.
