FREE BURNING BRIDGET CLEARY AT SHIPPEN MANOR JULY 13
The Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission is happy to present the Burning Bridget Cleary
international touring band in a free concert on the lawn of Shippen Manor, Sunday, July 13th at 6 PM. Burning Bridget Cleary players are: Rose Baldino (fiddle, banjo) and Deirdre Lockman (fiddle, vocals), Lou Baldino (guitar) and Peter Trezzi (djembe drum).
They have played hundreds of gigs along the East Coast and produced four CDs. We play high-energy traditional Celtic music, but with our own distinctive resonance,” Baldino says, “We add in a lot of original pieces as well as contemporary tunes and songs with a base of traditional and folk music. It’s very high-energy and exciting including some haunting airs and beautiful waltzes as well.
Burning Bridget Cleary is a tribute to the last witch burned in Ireland, according to folklore.
Come out to sweet and sunny downtown Oxford. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, alcohol free coolers, picnic baskets, and significant others for swinging and happy sounds in the heart of Warren County.
The Shippen Manor Lawn is located just off Route 31 in Oxford. This free Burning Bridget Cleary concert is presented by the Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission, supported by the Warren County Freeholders, and is funded in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
