NEW GLOUCESTER — Castlebay will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, at the New Gloucester Village Coffeehouse, in the vestry of the First Congregational Church, 19 Gloucester Hill Road.

The concert celebrates the Celtic cross holiday, Imbolc, which is halfway between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox.

Castlebay will have poems, songs and invocations that explore the various dimensions of Imbolc.

Castlebay members Julia Lane and Fred Gosbee have loved and researched traditional music for most of their lives, and blend history, legend and experience into their personable performances. Finely crafted ballads with evocative imagery and beautiful melodies depict characters, history and life close to the elements and the beauty of the land and sea. Their renditions of traditional and original songs are supported with Celtic harp, 12-string guitar, fiddle and woodwinds.

Tickets cost $10 at the door. FMI: 207-926-3260.
