VAIL, Colorado – Acclaimed Celtic guitarist Jerry Barlow will play a concert at the Vail Public Library at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. The library is located at 292 W. Meadow Drive in Vail.

Barlow’s music can transport the listener across time and space on an imaginary journey to such places as a rustic Irish fishing village, the misty Scottish Highlands, or an ancient English forest.

Barlow is a warm accessible performer and storyteller. His unique and skillfully delivered repertoire is a synthesis of his own Celtic inspired compositions and the traditional music of the British Isles. For centuries, Celtic melodies have been played primarily on the harp, flute, pennywhistle, and fiddle. More recently, innovative guitarists have developed methods of playing this enchanting music utilizing alternate tunings combined with fingerstyle techniques.

In concert, Jerry brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, humor and legends behind the music.

The concert is free and open to the public. For information call (970) 479-2194.
