Terry Boyle to present evening of Celtic music at Ladysmith art gallery

Boyle is from Dublin and a 17-year resident of Ladysmith.

Terry Boyle will present an evening of Celtic music, song and story at the Arts Council of Ladysmith and District’s temporary gallery.

This will be the fourth year of what has become a much anticipated annual event — all previous years have sold out. It will be hosted at the Davis Road School on Parkhill Terrace on March 11 at 7:00 p.m.

“The venue can be a perfect blending of multimedia and performing art. The audience will be surrounded by works of many local artists and people who have not yet visited the gallery have a chance to check it out,” Boyle said.

Boyle is from Dublin and a 17-year resident of Ladysmith. He left a career in teaching to pursue his musical interests. He has made numerous appearances on TV and radio, both in Canada and in his native Ireland, as well as touring extensively in Europe and performing in the USA for five years. He wrote Ladysmith-Jewel of the Island, as Ladysmith’s centennial song in 2004. He released his latest record of original songs, Life’s Too Short, in November 2018.

Boyle will be joined by guest fiddle player Ceilidh Briscoe from Victoria. Ceilidh is five-time North America Fiddle Champion, an All Ireland Fiddle Champion and toured for two years with the world renowned Riverdance, performing in China, Scandinavia, UK and USA.

“Last year unfortunately, COVID prevented the show from going ahead,” Boyle said. “In previous years we had the audience handing up many requests, most of which we were able to perform and it was amazing to hear so many people singing their heads off all evening.”

Tickets can be purchased online from the Ladysmith Arts Council website, by emailing info@ladysmitharts.ca or by by phone (250-245-1252).
