Celtic fingerstyle guitarist Jerry Barlow will be performing in the Milford Community Center on Tuesday, June 16, at 7 p.m. Come enjoy Barlow’s storytelling through traditional pieces and Celtic-inspired songs. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Spirit Lake Public Library, Friends of the Milford Memorial Library, and Arnolds Park Public Library.
“Barlow’s music transports the listener across time and space on an imaginary journey to a rustic Irish fishing village or the misty Scottish Highlands or an enchanted English forest. In concert, Barlow brings the songs alive by sharing the history, legend and humor behind the music. His expressive arrangements have been described as ‘music to soothe the soul, warm the heart, and lift the spirit.’” - www.jerrybarlow.com
