Celtic Christmas showdown

-A A +A

Performances: Dually Noted’s shows will benefit the United Way

The Celtic Christmas Showdown concerts this weekend features two Texas
State Celtic-Dulcimer Champions, vying to see which musician can out-perform the other.  
The concert will feature Celtic aires, Christmas carols and Appalachian blues.
The Celtic Christmas Showdown concert tour opened last weekend at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame with a benefit concert for the Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences.  The tour continued to Springfield, Mo. with a benefit concert for the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks.
The Celtic dulcimer is a stringed instrument, held on the lap and picked or strummed.  Celtic immigrants to Appalachia more than 200 years ago, invented the dulcimer.
Wendy Songe, from Oklahoma, won the 2012 Texas State Dulcimer Championship and New Mexico’s Jonathan Dowell won that contest in 2008.  Both of these musicians are also winners of the Southern Regional Championship, Dowell in 2007 and Songe in 2012.  
The concert will unite these two musicians in a friendly mock competition. Tessa Dowell performing pennywhistle and bodhran (Irish drum), will join the duo.
Together, these musicians call themselves Dually Noted. The Dually Noted Celtic Christmas Showdown CD with more than 50 minutes of aires andcarols, will be available at the concerts and online at wendysonge.com.
