CARTHAGE — New England Celtic Arts will present legendary Canadian performer Teresa Doyle at a Mother’s Day concert on Sunday, May 8, at Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center.

Doyle, who moves effortlessly from one musical passion to another, has five award-winning Celtic recordings, including a collection of Irish Gaelic songs. The birth of her son in 1994 inspired her to create children’s music from the Celtic tradition.

She credits much of her recording success to her long-standing relationship with Oliver Schroer. Her most recent release,” Late Night Parlour,” is dedicated to his memory.

The title track takes listeners to the tropical sensuality of Tobago and a mountainside rum shack called The Late Night Parlour. Her songwriting is sassy, sexy, danceable and fun.

Doyle’s 10 recordings on her label Bedlam Records have met with critical acclaim in the Maritimes, across North America, in Europe and in Japan. This body of work has garnered numerous awards, including two ECMAs, two JUNO nominations and the 2007 Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton award for music.

Her music appears on more than a dozen compilations, including three collections by Putumayo World Music with releases in 22 countries.

The Mother’s Day concert will be a mix of Celtic, jazz, swing and 1940s-1950s pop standards. Curtain is at 7 p.m. There will be a jam session one hour prior to show. For tickets, $15, call 562-4445. Skye Theatre is at 2 Highland Drive.

Celtic performer Teresa Doyle will take the stage at Skye Theatre in Carthage at 7 p.m. on Mother’s Day, May 8.
