LOGAN—The Bridger Folk Music Society presents Celtic Night 2014 a benefit concert for Cache Humane Society and Four-Paws Rescue at the Ellen Eccles Theater, in Logan, Utah, Friday, March 14, 2014 and Saturday, March 15, 2014, at 7:30pm. This St. Patrick’s Day celebration will feature Inishfre Irish Dance and Leaping Lulu collaborating in an engaging mix of Celtic songs, reels, jigs, and impeccable Irish dancing.
Inishfre Irish Dance has performed in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming since 2005. Inishfre Irish Dance has fifteen dancers ranging in age from 16 to 50 with diverse dancing experience, but all sharing a passion for Irish dance and the music that inspires. Founding Director Julie Zufelt comes from a background in ballet and piano and became fascinated with Irish step dancing after experiencing Riverdance. Zufelt’s original choreography is set to music that combines traditional folk tunes with driving rhythms and traditional and new-age instrumentation that culminate in extraordinary high-energy entertainment.
Leaping Lulu is a neo-traditional Celtic folk band based in Logan, Utah. In addition to their solo concerts and collaborations with Inishfre Irish Dance, Leaping Lulu is highly regarded for their Contra Dance music. Leaping Lulu has recorded four albums, The Walk Home, High Road Low Road, The Moving Cloud, and Into The West. Highlights from past engagements include performances at the Salt Lake Arts Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Thanksgiving Point Highland Games, Logan Summerfest, Utah Irish Music Festival, and NPR’s “The Folk Sampler.”
