Lorinda Jones & na Skylark
Na Skylark, which simply means "the skylarks" in Irish, is an all-female trio dedicated to playing the traditional music of Ireland, Scotland, and other Celtic lands on Ireland's national instruments: the Irish harp, and the Irish uilleann ("elbow") pipes. From there, na Skylark weaves these voices and others - Irish song, flutes and whistles, fiddle, and the Appalachian mountain dulcimer into a tapestry of sound and feeling that has delighted audiences large and small across the eastern United States.
An evening with Lorinda Jones, Cathy Wilde, and Jannell Canerday offers a rare chance to explore the musical soul and source of "Celtic Women" and "Riverdance" in a relaxed, warm, and truly up-close and personal setting. Charming, engaging, and often laugh-out-loud funny, na Skylark creates an atmosphere that invites audiences to learn about instruments, history, and music they may never have known about before - and always leaves them asking for more.
