Lisa Davenport Jenkins, who teaches undergraduate world music at Penn State, will visit The Public Library for Union County at 6:30 p.m. on Mon., April 25, to give a presentation, “Celtic Music.”
Jenkins will be joined by local musician Sara Kelley, formerly a member of the Celtic music group Callanish. Several traditional Celtic musical instruments will be introduced.
Jenkins’ work is based on research at the School of Scottish Studies in Edinburgh, Scotland as well as fieldwork focusing on the annual Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, Scotland.
