Critically-acclaimed group to perform in Lewistown
LEWISTOWN — On the cold, wind-lashed coastlands of Prince Edward Island a family gathered close around the wood stove, fiddles and guitars in hand. As the snow piled high on wild winter nights inside hearts were warmed by rhythmical reels and soaring melodies. As the chill gave way to the intoxicating sweetness of summer visitors from around the world gathered to hear the SKY Family perform their own particular blend of fast-paced Celtic music and Irish dance. Many friends were made and from there calls came to come to all parts of the U.S. and Canada. The summer concert series grew into coast to coast tours across America. Now they are here in your own town. And a chance has come for you to experience for yourself the joy, the music, the dance of this inspiring Celtic Gospel production.
The performance is an exciting blend of high-energy Celtic music, River Dance style Irish step-dance and inspiring gospel songs all combining to make an unforgettable experience. The family has been featured guests on various TV shows and their songs have been played across the U.S. and Canada on more than 250 radio stations.
The SKY Family’s production Celtic Revival! brings world-class Irish dance to lively Celtic/pop-rock music and songs rich in harmonies. Woven throughout are humorous stories and inspirational testimonies. The program is engaging for the whole family. From little ones to grandparents and all ages between everyone enjoys the good humor and high-stepping dance. Each member performs on several instruments and all contribute to the rich vocal harmonies and dance. Check out their music at www.theskys.org.
