First Sunday Music Series and Friends of the Encinitas Library present Sligo Rags on Sunday, May 1st, 2011 at 2p.m. Named among the top acoustic bands (by Folkworks Magazine), this dynamic ensemble presents Celtic Folk with a decidedly bluegrass attitude. Sligo Rags is taking the local and not-so-local Folk and Celtic music scenes by storm with a unique blend of eclectic musical influences.
Don’t be surprised if elements of country, gypsy jazz and swing manage to sneak their way into the act as well. Award-winning flatpicking and fingerstyle guitarist David Burns, fiddler extraordinaire Michael Kelly, and world-renowned bassist Gordon Rustvold are guaranteed to fill the room and your lives with electricity. They may give you a good laugh or two along the way as well.
*Additional parking available at City Hall, west of the library. Seating is limited.
