The Softer Side of Celtic, with Jeff Snow
Sunday, March 8, 2020, 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM, Adult Reading Room
AMHERST – Growing up as the son of a drummer in a Bagpipe band and in a home where older Celtic songs were the everyday sounds, Jeff Snow developed a love for the music of Scotland, England and Ireland. His concerts have been described as 'quiet and relaxing ' and much of it is, but sometimes he'll break out and the foot stomping begins.
Celtic Culture is woven deeply throughout the fabric of America and especially so in the Northeast. The Softer Side of Celtic combines the music, stories and a wee bit of history from Scotland, Ireland and England into a program that will keep your audience on the edge of their seat. There will be singing, laughing, clapping and perhaps a bit of foot stomping. The concerts are interactive; questions and input from the audience are encouraged and become part of the event.
The magical sounds from the instruments coupled with vocals and Jeff's love and knowledge of his Scottish heritage create a delightful program of traditional and original tunes and songs.

Will BroussardAMHERST – Bitter cold, dense fog, heavy snow, and record winds: Mount Washington is known worldwide for its unpredictable and dangerous weather. For a mountain its size, why is Mt. Washington called the 'Home of the World’s Worst Weather”?

We will explore how the mountain's weather works and what it can tell us about New England’s own weather patterns. This program will include interactive demonstrations, weather instruments, stunning photography, and video footage from the summit. This exciting program is appropriate for adults and children alike.
Speaker Will Broussard coordinates and leads programs on Mt. Washington’s natural, cultural, and scientific history. He has an undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Maine and a Master of Science degree in environmental studies from Antioch University New England in Keene. Originally from midcoast Maine, his passions include hiking and bird watching.
