Reconnect with Celtic roots, chiming in with the Greenville-based 6 piece ensemble Twisted Knot, the band that brings the Emerald Isle to eastern Carolina. Enjoy a wide range of Celtic flavor from the emotive “Danny Boy “and “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” to crowd-pleasing sea-shanties like “Drunken Sailor,” and the song that made a viral sensation, “The Wellerman.” Anchored by the soaring melodies (and sometimes breakneck speed) of founder Mamie Dixon’s fiddle and mandolin, the band also includes Catherine Walker's Celtic flute, Sylvia Bjorkman on guitar, Jim Joseph on guitar and vocals, Rebecca Hall on Irish percussion and vocals, Donna Davis on bass and vocals

For this performance at the Turnage Theatre, Twisted Knot pays tribute to the roots that connect Celtic, Appalachian and gospel music. The band is pleased to intersperse some of their favorite old time gospel songs amongst traditional Celtic tunes that will be sure to have you singing along.
