At about 1:30 pm, special guests Tramor will take the program. Tramor (Welsh for “overseas”) is the new traditional music project of John Good, formally of Oceans Apart. John is well known through out the U.S. and in his native Wales as a multi-instrumentalist, Welsh piper, singer/songwriter, composer and poet. Veteran of many Celtic festivals and concerts, he brings the subtly different flavor of traditional Welsh music to our cultural celebration. On this occasion he is aided and abetted by Harpist extraordinaire John Piggott. (www.tramormusic.com)
“This is an ideal opportunity for anyone with an interest in Welsh culture to experience a literal and figurative “taste of Wales,” said St. David’s Society president, Lori McAlister. “This event has become a tradition for the Welsh diaspora living in the area. It is always a treat when we can re-connect the dots by including Welsh natives performing authentic music, song and poetry.”
All are welcome. You do not have to be of Welsh descent or a member of the society to participate in this day of celebration.
