|Four Shillings Short at Moonlight on the Mountain, Birmingham, Alabama|
Four Shillings Short will perform a concert on Tuesday, March 15, 6:30 p.m., at the Springville Road Regional Branch Library. They will perform traditional and original music from the Celtic lands, medieval and Renaissance Europe, India, and the Americas on over 30 world instruments. The husband/wife duo of Aodh Og O’Tuama from Cork, Ireland, and Christy Martin from California, have been performing together since 1995. They tour in the US and Ireland, traveling from town to town playing at music festivals, theatres, performing arts centers, folk and historic societies, libraries, museums, and schools.
They have tailored their library concerts, which last from 40 to 90 minutes, to be educational as well as entertaining. During the program they will introduce each instrument, talk about its history, and follow with a demonstration in the form of a song or instrumental piece. The group's main objective is to give people, young and old, an opportunity to experience traditional folk and world music.
