FARMINGTON — New England Celtic Arts will present The Tartan Terrors at Old South Congregational Church in Farmington on Sunday, Sept. 11. A pre-show jam session will kick off at 6 p.m. and the curtain is at 7. 
 
Tartan Terrors are their own Celtic Invasion, mixing rock’s energy with traditional folklore, dance and humor. With an arsenal featuring classic pipes and fiddle, driving drum tones, and signature guitar styles, standing-room only audiences understand why Dig This Magazine declares “(The Terrors) one act to keep an eye on!” The Terrors use their Sonic blitz to score award-winning step and highland dancers and internationally-recognized comedic performers alike.
 
Members of the Tartan Terrors have performed on four continents; in some of the most prestigious festivals, highland games and theaters of North America including Lone Tree Center for the Arts in Colorado, Strand Capitol, Pennsylvania; Oshkosh Opera House, Wisconsin; Dublin Irish Festival, Dublin, Ohio; Newport Irish Festival, Newport, Rhode Island and “Good Morning America.” 
 
Ellen Irmisch has been co-directing the Tartan Terrors with her brother since 1996; she has performed throughout North America in numerous Theatres, festivals, Renaissance fairs and corporate events. Past performance credits include: “Carousel” and “Our Town” at Stratford Festival, Beatrice in “Much Ado about Nothing,” Viola in “Twelfth Night,” Belle in “Scrooge,”and performed in  Tim Allen’s “The Santa Clause,” “Anne of Green Gables.”
 
Co-artistic director is Ian Irmisch, Ellen’s brother. He has an extensive career in the professional arts. At the age of 5 he had already performed in the prestigious Great Hall of Hamilton Place, and he has never looked back since! Ian holds credentials with ACTRA, CAEA, and the AFM.
