Celtic guitarist Barlow to perform in Sibley


SIBLEY, Iowa — The Sibley Public Library will welcome Celtic fingerstyle guitarist Jerry Barlow in concert at 7 p.m. Monday at the library, 406 Ninth St. The program is sponsored by the library and is free to the community.

Barlow’s repertoire incorporates favorite traditional pieces as well as his own Celtic-inspired compositions. His arrangements of lively jigs, spirited reels and haunting airs are described as music to soothe the soul, warm the heart and lift the spirit.

Music from all of Barlow’s recordings can be heard regularly on National Public Radio stations.  He has been featured in Fingerstyle Guitar magazine, and was profiled in Celtic Connection. He has performed in the Gates Auditorium for the University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music, the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts, and is a favorite of High plains Public Radio’s Living Room Concert Series in Amarillo, Texas.
