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.

    ----------- TIPS --------------

    Limited quantities. If you put multiples of an item you want and we only have one in stock an alert will pop up on the desktop site telling you it is out of stock. That means the quantity you selected is higher than the available inventory. For example, Tufa Troughs are all unique. There is only one of each. Each week we take an inventory and add back products that might show as sold out. We’re doing this so we don’t oversell by mistake. So our product availability will change weekly.

    iPad shopping. We learned that the pop-up screen where you enter your credit card info was a problem for some. At times the credit card fields were way at the top of the screen and some could not see where to enter their information when shopping on an iPad. This happened especially when they had big orders. If you have problems please message our Facebook Page. We’re learning right along with you and want to help.
