Celtic Band to Perform at WSU Tri-Cities
TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- Skweez the Weezle, a Celtic band, will play traditional and original Celtic music from 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, at the Washington State University Tri-Cities East Building Commons. The concert is free. Guests are asked to bring a donation of a canned food item for the winter food drive.
The Celtic band features David Lanigan on bagpipes, Troy Hanford on guitar, Dawn Gordon on fiddle, and Denver Greer on bodhram.
Lanigan has been playing various bagpipes for 16 years and has been influenced by the piping styles of Scotland, Ireland, and Cape Breton. Hanford brings over 20 years experience playing country, rock and blues guitar. Gordon is a classically trained violinist who had her Celtic debut playing fiddle for two years with the Irish Heirs of Spokane. Denver is the bass drummer with the local pipe band Desert Thistles.
WSU Tri-Cities is located on University Drive in Richland, just north of Hanford High School. For more information, contact the Associated Students of WSU Tri-Cities at 509/372-7351.
