Irish Folk Concert at the Windsor Historical Society


March 16

 The Windsor Historical Society brings you the luck of the Irish when it hosts the Celtic folk duo Tara’s Thistle from 7pm to 9pm on Thursday, March 16.  The evening will begin with a short discussion of Irish history in Windsor by Society curator Erin Stevic. Then Tara’s Thistle’s Bruce and Sandy Hedman will delight the crowd with a St. Patrick’s Day concert filled with traditional and contemporary Irish tunes.


Performing since 1995, Tara’s Thistle combines vocal harmony with accompaniment from the guitar, Irish drum, bagpipes, harmonica, Irish flute, and other Celtic instruments.  The duo has traveled extensively in Ireland and Scotland and their music has a festive and authentic flavor sure to delight listeners.  Popular across Connecticut, Tara’s Thistle has earned a place on the CONNTours Directory of Performing Arts and is recognized as one of the state’s premiere performance pairs.


The Tara Thistle concert is run in conjunction with the Windsor Historical Society’s Celebrate: Holidays in Windsor 1880-1910 exhibition currently on view in the Society’s North Gallery.  The exhibition, which explores 19th century holidays in Windsor, will be open during the concert.  Those who miss this fun-filled event will be green with envy!
