October 24, 2009: Celtic band Blackwater playing and singing traditional and modern Celtic music. The opening singers, a dozen girls from Highland Park High School who form the ensemble Amandala, also charmed the audience with their amazing voices. Thanks, everyone involved in producing the concert and to those who came out and supported WIMNI (in spite of torrential rain)!
2006: Blackwater played to a full house in 2006 as part of Who Is My Neighbor’s Global Heart concert series. Rooted in Irish and British traditions, the three men and two women perform songs that range from rollicking and thunderous to winsome and poignant. With traditional and modern instruments they make music that is high-spirited or reflective, with plenty of humor in the mix.
