A Monthly Concert Series
The award-winning Celtic duo of guitarist Robin Bullock and harpist Sue Richards, in partnership with White Horse Black Mountain, present CAROLINA CELTIC, a monthly concert series in Black Mountain, North Carolina. Carolina Celtic showcases Irish and Scottish musical traditions and explores their commonality with the Appalachian ballads and stories of the Carolina mountains.
Robin and Sue, both proud transplants to the North Carolina mountains, blend the ancient majesty of Celtic tradition with the influence of the “New Land,” creating music that’s beautiful and timeless, yet fresh and current. Their individual achievements speak for themselves, with (among many other accomplishments) Sue being a four-time National Scottish Harp Champion and Robin being ranked among the “100 Greatest Acoustic Guitarists” by DigitalDreamDoor.com and a longtime touring sideman with Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award winner Tom Paxton. The magic of their combined artistic excellence and mastery of Celtic traditions is captured on their many individual recordings and their brilliant 2018 duo CD Highland Ramble.
The concerts take place at White Horse Black Mountain (details and contact info below) the second Monday of every month at 7:30 pm, and present a variety of world-class guest artists, ensuring that no two Carolina Celtic concerts are the same.
