Latest Library News: Celtic & Christmas Music, Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent Photo Op

The following is a release from the Burlington Public Library: 


A Gathering of Celtic & Christmas Music: A Musical Performance by Jeff Snow - Thursday, December 12 at 7pm

Traditional music and stories from Scotland, England and Ireland are combined with familiar, and not so familiar, Christmas music into an event the audience will remember for a long time. Growing up in a home where old Scottish folk songs were the everyday sounds, Jeff developed an early love for Celtic music which he loves to share. This program is made possible by the generosity of the Friends of the Burlington Public Library.  Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.
