Tarton Terrors to Perform at Kent State Tuscarawas
Tarton Terrors, North America's premier Celtic event, are coming to the Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas in New Philadelphia on March 11, 2015 at 7:30 p.m.
Tartan Terrors are their own Celtic Invasion, mixing rock's energy with traditional folklore, dance and humor. With an arsenal featuring classic pipes and fiddle, driving drum tones and signature guitar styles, standing-room only audiences understand why Dig This Magazine declares "(The Terrors) are one act to keep an eye on!" The Terrors use their sonic blitz to score award winning step and highland dancers and internationally recognized comedic performers alike.
“This pre-St. Patrick’s Day celebration combines humorous anecdotes, bagpipes, Irish singing and dancing for one hilarious performance,” said Dr. Mike Morelli, general manager of the Performing Arts Center. “Audience members often get into the celebration by wearing kilts and painting their faces blue. When our patrons repeatedly asked about this multi-talented, Celtic group, I knew they would be an excellent addition to our season and a good fit for our theatre. It’s a family show that keeps the audience laughing!”
Members of the Tartan Terrors have performed on four different continents; in some of the most prestigious festivals, highland games and theatres of North America including; Lone Tree Center for the Arts, CO; Strand Capitol, PA; Oshkosh Opera House, WI; Dublin Irish Festival, Dublin, OH; Newport Irish Festival, Newport, RI; and on ABC’s Good Morning America.
