Tahoe Arts Project will present the Celtic group Craicmore (krak’mor) at 7 p.m. Feb. 10 at the Embassy Suites ballroom in Stateline. Craicmore, a contemporary, traditional Celtic band with deep roots in the music of Scotland and Ireland, features critically acclaimed contralto Nancy Johnston. Her deep, rich, “velvety voice” is rare in a genre most often sung in the soprano range.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children and seniors and may be purchased in advance at South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe Douglas chambers of commerce. Tickets will also be available at the door. General admission seating will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Driving rhythms from guitar, bass, Bohdran drum, conga and other percussion, along with high-spirited whistles, flutes and pipes, powerfully render jigs and reels, the dance music of Ireland. Clear vocal harmonies support songs of love and courting from the Celtic lands. Rhythmic hardshoe dancing, an East Indian Shruti Box and rumbling Didjeridoo all accent the warmth and passion of Craicmore’s fiery performances. They have toured for more than eight years throughout the Western states, in concert and at folk and cultural festivals.

Craicmore will be performing for students Monday through Friday as part of Tahoe Arts Project’s arts in the schools programs.

Tahoe Arts Project is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide cultural enrichment and diversity for the community through the arts and education with particular focus on the youth. For more information please call (530) 542-3632.
