Note the change from our usual first Thursday of the month
On Tuesday June 11th at 9pm in the Abbey Tavern, Howth Singing Circle is delighted to bring you special guests, from the Appalachian tradition of Rural Retreat, Virginia: Elizabeth LaPrelle and her mother Sandy Newlin
Elizabeth LaPrelle is known for her magnificent voice, her respect for the old Appalachian songs, and her authentic mountain sound and style.
This is a rare opportunity to experience an evening of authentic Appalachian folk singing from Elizabeth and her mother Sandy.
Please feel free to forward this to any interested.
