Celtic Guitarist Jerry Barlow Featured at Boulder City Library

The Boulder City Library is pleased to welcome acclaimed Celtic fingerstyle guitarist and storyteller Jerry Barlow. The program will be held on Thursday, January 18th, PM at the Library, 701 Adams Blvd. in Boulder City..  The program is sponsored by the Bristow Public Library and is free to the community

Barlow is a warm, accessible performer and storyteller. His unique and skillfully delivered repertoire incorporates favorite traditional pieces as well as his own Celtic-inspired compositions.  His expressive arrangements of lively jigs, spirited reels, and haunting airs is described as music to soothe the soul, warm the heart and lift the spirit.

“In concert, Jerry brings traditional Celtic tunes alive by sharing the history, humor, and legends behind the music.  “Jerry Barlow … a performer who is skilled, funny and riveting.  Out of the many musicians performing today, the vast majority are skilled in either performing on their instrument or in entertaining an audience.  It’s very rare and extremely enjoyable to see a musician at the very top of his craft in both areas,” says Scott Beach, Director of Colorado Celtic Entertainment.

Barlow’s latest CD, VOYAGE OF HOPE, was released in early September.  It features songs about the Irish immigration to America in the mid-1800s.   His 2011 recording, FIELDS AND FENCES, was one of five nominees for Instrumental Album of the Year by the Independent Music Awards. The Indie Acoustic Project selected the title song from Jerry’s CD, BRING DOWN THE STORM, as “one of the best songs of 2006.”

Music from all of Barlow’s recordings can be heard regularly on National Public Radio stations.  He has been featured in Fingerstyle Guitar magazine, and was profiled in Celtic Connection. He has performed in the Gates Auditorium for the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music, the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts, and is a favorite of High plains Public Radio’s Living Room Concert Series in Amarillo, TX.
