Catch Celtic folk, rock, pop and bluegrass groups in Kent

Skerryvore, We Banjo 3 perform Oct. 13 at Kent-Meridian PAC

Skerryvore, a multi-award winning folk-rock band from Scotland, and award-winning quartet We Banjo 3 from Ireland join forces for an unforgettable night of Celtic folk, rock, pop and bluegrass.

Catch the concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Kent-Meridian High School Performing Arts Center, 10020 SE 256th St. The show is part of the annual city of Kent Spotlight Series.

Tickets are $28 general, $26 senior and $15 youth. For tickets, go to kentarts.com.

Twice winners of Scotland’s Traditional Music “Live Act of the Year” award, Skerryvore have been on a meteoric journey that has taken them from the remote Isle of Tiree to international tours. They create a unique fusion of folk, trad, rock and pop that represents all the personalities and background of the eight band members who hail from various regions of Scotland.

We Banjo 3 delivers a ground-breaking mixture of Irish, old-time American and bluegrass music with remarkable virtuosity and passion. The members of We Banjo 3 are among the most celebrated and distinguished young musicians in Ireland today, including a seven-time all-Ireland banjo champ, a four-time banjo champ and another member who is an all-Ireland champ on both fiddle and Bodhran. Combined with a passionate lead vocalist who is like a young Springsteen adopted by the Chieftans, the result is truly unforgettable, according to a city of Kent press release.
