The Tannahill Weavers will perform in concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 6, at 49 Franklin in Rumford and at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 7, at Old South Church in Farmington.

The Scottish traditional band is touring in celebration of its 50th anniversary. They first visited the United States in 1981, beginning their journey of traditional melodies on pipes, flute and fiddle, driving rhythms on guitar and bouzouki, and powerful three- and four-part vocal harmonies. From reflective ballads to foot-stomping reels and jigs, the variety and range of the material they perform is matched by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.

Tickets for the 49 Franklin performance, at 49 Franklin St., are available at Bartash’s and All That Jazz in Rumford and online at www.49franklin.com. Doors open at 6 p.m. for an all-cash, pub-style menu and cash bar.
