2014 Second Saturdays March

Celtic dancers, strolling musicians, new businesses, new artists on deck

Second Saturdays steps into the Irish spirit for March. Hosted at Rosbrook Studio, The Celtic Rhythm Dancers from Colleen's School of Clogging & Celtic Dance in Sterling are set to perform in the historic hall. The group of eight performs both traditional Irish jigs and reels along with contemporary Irish dances. The Celtic Rhythm Dancers have performed in Ireland, traveled and performed with live bands around the Midwest such as Switchback and Searson, and they have performed for many events in the Sauk Valley community. In addition to soft shoe Irish routines in the traditional dresses, they tell stories of the cultural histories and traditions behind Irish step dancing.

Trein's Jewelry offers music for the first time, featuring 'Quite Contrary' strolling and singing with her guitar. Mary C. Townley, a.k.a. "Quite Contrary" is a singer songwriter and a very talented multi-instrumentalist. Mary began playing guitar when she was 8 years old. Her father who played various instruments and made music a family event inspired her. When Mary's Father passed away she greatly missed him and his playing of guitar, piano, harmonica and ukulele. While living in the south of France, she took advantage of the time to learn classical technique on the guitar. Mary has used this style to enhance her musicianship and songwriting abilities. Mary believes that growing in her craft as a musician is paramount to the good stewardship of her gifts and talents. With that belief, Mary has added Native American Indian flute, Irish penny whistles, folk harp, auto harp, melodica, and several percussion instruments to her instrument family. She performs & entertains with a wide variety of music, including different languages.

More is in store at Roxies with music by the Killer B's. New business, Penny Lane features art by Laura Miller of daBluz Boutique. The Crystal Cork displays art by Erin Clark. The Ginkgo Tree Café hosts musician, Matthew Kinnaman. Books on First bring in Flying Fish, Jeff Kagay and Todd Lorenc. Rosbrook Studio's open mic sign-up starts at 7:00 p.m. Val's Place offers music by Pie Filler and the Honey Jack Party. The Next Picture Show has a banner signing by Neal Aspinall.
