Celtic performer Matthew Gurnsey visits Vail Publi Library

Veteran performer Matthew Gurnsey will play a concert at the Vail Public Library at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served.

Gurnsey delights audiences with his rousing performances of traditional Irish and Scottish music. Through the marriage of wit and finesse, Gurnsey charms his audiences, sweeping them into tales of wayward voyages, unrequited love and the vibrantly colorful lives of the every-man beloved of many Irish tales. His unique talents with traditional Celtic instruments, such as the concertina, bodhran, bones and mandolin, add an air of authenticity to each piece, and his stirringly rich bass voice provides the foundation for the hauntingly beautiful melodies.

No stranger to live performance, Gurnsey began performing at a very young age and has appeared on hundreds of stages nationally and internationally, delighting thousands with his Scottish swagger and homespun charm. Gurnsey especially honed his Celtic skills while living in Scotland among the people and culture that are his heritage and the inspiration for his music.
