They'll introduce less common instruments like Irish cittern and wooden flute alongside the more familiar fiddle, dulcimer, accordion, guitar, and banjo. In addition to traditional music from Scotland, Ireland, and the newly settled South, the program will hit on geography, migration patterns, history, and the stories and experiences of immigrants.
DiGuiseppe is a well known accordionist who began his career in the late `70s. He's also a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and storyteller. Sharer relocated to Ireland's County Clare in 1998 and has toured the US, China, and Europe playing traditional Irish music with Irish musicians Dennis Liddy and Michael Hynes.
Refreshments, a song circle, and a jam follows the hour long concert. The Charlotte Appalachian Dulcimer Club will have loaner instruments on hand for anyone that wants to try it. The event, which begins at 7:30 p.m., is free, although donations are accepted and appreciated. For more information check out www.folksociety.org.
