Glamourie Celtic Concert
Glamourie will enchant you with rich vocal harmonies, accompanied by Celtic harp and violin.
Continuing a new program designed to "Build Community through Concerts," Performance @ Park Presidio is pleased to announce that East Bay musicians Shira Kammen, Patrice Haan, and Celia Ramsay will be on stage as "Glamourie" on Sunday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m. The concert will include original songs, as well as original arrangements of traditional songs
This is a much anticipated encore performance for the trio whose was to a sold out house concert in April 2014, where one audience member wrote: "This was such a sumptuous feast. The older I get, the more I appreciate the communal magic of a room full of people all focused on the same performance. And if the artists are extraordinary, it can start to feel almost otherworldly: 'Pinch me; I must be dreaming!' There were the usual lot of perfectly worthy concerts going on in the Bay Area on Sunday night, but I reveled in the sense that, out of all the possibilities, I had managed to arrive at exactly the right place--savoring the glorious gifts of Glamourie!"
The musical group's name is taken from an old Scottish word that means enchantment in its original senseto "put the glamour" on someone was to truly bewitch them. Think 'casting spells'. The transition to the modern sense of the word is glamour, which suggests the ability to spellbind with beauty, and the Glamourie gals joke that, as women of a certain age, they'll take any association with glamour they can get!
Shira Kammen is a multi-instrumentalist and recording artist who has spent well over half her life exploring the worlds of early and traditional music, revered as an ensemble musician and teacher of early music, violin and its medieval cousin, vielle. Patrice Haan is a vocalist, Celtic harper and songwriter, who also performs elegant jazz standards with husband, Tony Marcus, as Leftover Dreams, and is a remarkable solo recording artist with four albums of her own original songs. Celia Ramsay is known for her haunting renditions of Scottish traditional music, as well as her jazzy original songs and lyrical renditions of jazz standards. Together, these three women offer a compelling trio of voices.
