A Celtic Solstice
A trio of gifted multi-instrumentalists, Skylark presents a riveting performance of Celtic music. After years of touring the world independently, the three close friends finally decided to collaborate. Their debut album, Tunes and Songs from Celtic Lands, was released in 2014 to great acclaim. With Alexander Mitchell on fiddle, mandolin, and guitar; Elise Kress on flute and pennywhistle; and Zan McLeon on guitar and bouzouki, Skylark delights with an electrifying blend of traditional and contemporary Celtic sounds, transporting audiences to the lush Emerald Isle.
- Alexander Mitchell played for and appeared in Ted Turner’s film Gettysburg.
- Elise Kress won a Wammie for Best Celtic Album of the Year with her solo record Present, Past and Future.
- Zan McLeod’s impressive resume includes international tours with members of The Chieftains and the Red Clay Ramblers.
