MHM Brings Scottish Folk To Town

Mountain Home Music will present a special concert on Thursday, Oct. 13, featuring the Scottish folk band, North Sea Gas.

The show will take place at the Blowing Rock home of Sarah Borders, at 134 Lyn St. The event begins with a potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m., and the music will start at 7:15 p.m.

Advance tickets are required, and admission is $18 per person.

Going for more than 30 years and stronger than ever, the band entertains with guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, bodhran, whistles, banjo and vocals, featuring tremendous three-part harmonies.

Over the years, North Sea Gas have recorded 17 albums and are constantly adding new material to their show. Their show consists of traditional, contemporary and self-penned material, all put together with a style of their own.

Continually touring the world, their stops include America, Canada, Germany, Austria, Scotland and many other destinations, including Estonia and Turkey, every year.

TV and radio appearances on both sides of the Atlantic include “Late Night Saturday,” “Bound for Glory,” “Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour” (shown on PBS in the U.S. South) and “Song of the Mountains” (also shown on select PBS stations in the U.S.).

In 2008, North Sea Gas recorded for Chinese television with an estimated audience of 800 million, a highlight of any band’s career.
