Musician to bring Irish tunes to Asheboro library
ASHEBORO – Hear some fine Irish tunes and learn about the country’s music in “An International Musical Journey: Trip to Ireland,” at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 18, at the Asheboro Public Library.
The performance will feature musician Travis Hicks, who will play traditional Irish music including jigs, reels, hornpipes and slow airs on traditional hand-crafted instruments. With 18 years' experience on the Irish whistles and bagpipes, Hicks will demonstrate the nuances of the Irish pipes, tin whistle, and Anglo concertina in the Irish tradition.
The concert, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, is free and the public is invited. A question and answer session will follow the musical demonstration.
Irish music is an avocation for Hicks, who is an assistant professor of interior architecture at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and director of the Center for Community-Engaged Design.
The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 336-318-6803.
