On Sunday, June 28th, The Celtic Collection hosted Charlie Zahm in a house concert. Charlie has the a soothing baritone voice and performs a variety of music styles. He delighted the small group with music from Scotland, Nova Scotia and Australia. As Charlie sang for us you could almost feel the damp moist air of Scotland. Many of the the tunes were well known and so we were able to sing along.
Charlie was joined in a few selections by Bob Pegretiz,a Penny whistle player from Pittsburgh.Bob is recording another CD and has written a tune becoming well known in Pittsburgh, named Born of Fire and Steel.
The purpose behind a house concert is to create a small and intimate setting where the audience is treated to the best a performer can offer, without the noise of a pub atmosphere. This concert was exceptional and Charlie will be returning to us next year. Stay tuned to The Celtic Collection calender of events to see when Chalie will be here again.
