Golden Bough

Golden Bough

America Bound

April 11, 2021  •  3 pm

Season 29 continues with Golden Bough, who will take the audience on a musical journey from the Emerald Isle to the New World—and do so remotely, via the magic of Zoom.

Margie, Paul, & Kathy will perform music from the Celtic Lands along with classic American Folk Songs and favorites from the American Folk Revival of the 50’s and 60’s.

The beautiful Irish ballad “The Bard of Armagh” (written in the 1600s) came to America and evolved into the cowboy classic “The Streets of Laredo.” “Isle of Hope” is a song about Annie Moore; at the age of 15, she became the first immigrant to come to America through Ellis Island in 1892.

Their program also features great American classics, with traveling as a theme. These include such songs as “This Land is Your Land”, “Red River Valley”, “Sentimental Journey,” and “Walk Right In”.

These songs are the backbone of American folk music and invoke a simpler time. You’ll be singing and humming along to the songs America loves!

Tickets are $25 for this online event. Links to the Zoom meeting will be emailed to ticket holders prior to the concert. However you decide to purchase—please make sure we get your email address!

  1. Hello,
    I purchased a ticket for the April 11 concert through PayPal. However, there was not a place in that process to provide my email address nor any real ticket confirmation except for PayPal stating that payment received. So, I will provide my email here in hopes of receiving the link that will allow me to view the concert virtually. Thank you.

    • You should have received an email today (the 10th) with viewing instructions. Pardon us as we work out the kinks of this whole “virtual” thing…

  2. Just purchased today (wasn’t sure if I had a conflict and if the concert would be available for delayed viewing). Will I get the email link today. Presumably to my paypal email address?

    • Just sent you viewing instructions by email. Info on the archived version will be sent at a later date.
