New England Celtic Arts will present Barrule from the Isle of Man on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 49 Franklin’s Celtic Cabaret in Rumford, and on Thursday, Oct.26, at Old South Church Concert Series in Farmington. Curtin times are 7 p.m. at both locations. A jam session will begin at 6:15 p.m. in Farmington.

The unique sound of traditional Manx music is the Celtic World’s best kept secret. This has changed with the introduction of Barrule, the Award winning trio dedicated to taking the music of the Isle of Man to a much wider audience.

Named after the famous Manx summit where legend says the ancient Celtic God Manannan MacLir stalked his mighty fortress, Barrule fuses three distinct musical forces — gifted fiddle-player Tomas Callister, accordion wizard Paddy Callihan and versatile accompanist Adam Rhodes on bouzouki. Together this versatile acoustic unit creates a powerful and wholly distinctive sound.
