Share | |

Posted on September 21, 2012

The women’s trio Simple Gifts will present a workshop and perform ethnic folk music Sept. 25 at Cal U.

The women play a variety of instruments — including the concertina, mandolin, banjolin, hammered dulcimer and many others — as they perform lively Irish jigs, haunting Gypsy melodies, Appalachian reels and other traditional folk music from around the world.

Two events are scheduled: 

  • 11 a.m. — Women and Music Workshop
  • 8 p.m. — Simple Gifts performance

Both events will be held in Gallagher Hall, Room 107. Students, faculty, staff and the general public may attend. Admission is free.

The performance is presented by the California Recital Series (funded by the Student Activities Board and the College of Liberal Arts) and the Women’s Studies program at Cal U.
