FARMINGTON — New England Celtic Arts will present the Dave Rowe Holiday Special at 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 3, at North Church with the Farmington Historical Society. 
Tickets are $15.
A Lewiston-Auburn holiday tradition is coming to Farmington. Since the early ’90s, Dave Rowe and Phil House have been performing a holiday concert together at the First Universalist Church in Auburn. Through the years the concert has undergone changes. The first four or five years, Dave was joined on stage by his late father, Tom, (of Schooner Fare) in their duo called Rowe by Rowe.
The concert was actually the elder Rowe’s idea. After several years, Denny Breau joined in the fun when he joined the Rowes’ band, becoming a trio called Turkey Hollow. Tom Rowe passed away in early 2004, and since that year Dave has continued the tradition with Denny and Phil.
“It’s a family affair in every sense,” explained Dave Rowe. “Phil House and I have been performing this show together for so long, and now Denny Breau has since 1998. It’s just like getting together with family and friends for a little music over the holidays. I don’t think any of us would miss this for the world!”
A highlight of the show will be the playing of the 1904 Cole antique tracker organ in the newly remodeled space. The show will also be the last regularly scheduled performance of the 2015 season with New England Celtic Arts at North Church.
North Church is located at 118 High St.  For reservations at North Church call: 207-778-2006. Tickets are $15.
