Tartan Terrors and Bowfire perform at the Ridgefield Playhouse
March 4, 2013 by Mark
Last Saturday, the Tartan Terrors launched the St. Patrick’s Day season with a fantastic performance at the Ridgefield Playhouse.
The Canadian-based group was unstoppable, paired with performances by highland dancers and comics, and the Tartan Terrors have performed at festivals like the theaters of North America and the Highland Games (also having performed for President Bill Clinton and Queen Elizabeth II).
Continuing on with the St. Patrick’s Day theme, the Ridgefield Playhouse also featured a performance by Bowfire last night, March 3, at 7:30pm.
Describing Bowfire before the event, the News Times website said:
“Bowfire is an all-star show of violin and fiddle virtuosos, dancers and singers. The theatrically staged musical experience features songs and dancing in jazz, classical, bluegrass, Celtic, rock, gypsy, Texas swing and other genres.”
It is not too late to get involved, as the Playhouse will continue its St. Patrick’s vibe with the Saw Doctors, a successful (and much loved) rock band from Ireland, on March 7 and 8.
The not-for-profit Ridgefield Playhouse’s mission is to, as described on its own website:
“… present a variety of performing arts to the community and the surrounding area that they can enjoy and experience at a varied price point. The Playhouse presents national and local acts and is the cultural hub for the town of Ridgefield.”
