If you like traditional Irish music you should check out the all-female Celtic band Triskele who is performing at View in Old Forge this Saturday, July 15th. Triskele is known for their amazing harmonies and melodic grasp of the Gaelic language.
Triskele will be at View on the 15th at 7:30pm and tickets are $15 for View members and $20 for non-members. It will be a two-set concert that will take place in Gould Hall.
Triskele was formed at Albany Medical Center in 2009 by coworkers Noeleen Druckenmiller (Whelan), a Dublin-born native, and Sharon Wheeler, a Capital Region native. A year later, Jennifer Kilinski joined the Celtic group.
Historically, Celtic music has been primarily sung by men, so Triskele is truly unique in that they are an all-female group. Triskele has won audiences over through their crystal clear harmonies and Irish wit.
Traditional Irish songs are sung with fresh interpretations with the following instruments being utilized: 12-string guitar, 6-string guitar, mandolin, accordion, Bodhran, flute, whistles, bass, and various percussion instruments.
View on Route 28 in Old Forge presents national and regional art exhibitions, performances, and workshops for all ages. The staff at View aim to make both visual and performing arts an accessible and important part of the lives of residents and tourists of the Adirondacks.
