Concert to benefit Brother Wolf

Alternative music, Americana music, and Celtic music will be performed in the Expo building at the WNC Ag Center on Saturday, March 26. The concert is humbly titled “Helping to Heal the Heart of Humanity,” and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.

Tuatha Dea, from Gatlinburg, TN, will present its unique combination of Celtic, Tribal and Gypsy Rock music that has been described as producing pure primal energy. The Brevard-based Dave Desmelik Trio will play its own interpretations of the Americana musical genre, featuring unpretentious original compositions from Desmelik, who describes himself as “a journeyman musician.” And Asheville’s Carolina Ceili – a four piece band, not a single person – will perform everything from pub favorites to ballads in the Celtic tradition. (Note: Ceili is pronounced “kay-lee” in Irish, and means a social event at which there is Celtic music and dancing.)
