Celtic Fiddle Guru

Event Date(s)

Begins: February 12, 2019 2:00 pm
Ends: February 12, 2019 3:00 pm

Colin MacLeod, aka the Celtic Fiddle Guru, will perform some lively tunes at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, at the Port Orange Regional Library, 1005 City Center Circle.

The Scotland native and Port Orange resident travels the world playing Celtic fiddle, telling stories, teaching, performing and speaking. He released a book, “Kickstart your Day the Celtic Fiddle Way,” in 2015 and took fiddle playing to new heights in 2017, when he played over Mt. Everest in an airplane and provided Sumatran elephants with a rendition of “Jingle Bells.”

His free concert is part of the Volusia County Public Library's NEA Big Read, a six-week celebration of “A Wizard of Earthsea,” a 1968 fantasy novel by Ursula K. Le Guin. The NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

Reservations are not required. For more information, call the library at 386-322-5152, option 4.
