On Saturday, Nov. 16, at 2 p.m., the Celtic-fusion band Greenhouse will perform at the Sonoma Valley Regional Library. This performance will be held in the main room of the library as the Friends of the Library book sale is occurring in the Forum Room.

Greenhouse has been at the forefront of Northern California’s Celtic revival since its inception in 1991, entertaining audiences with their blend of lively jigs and reels, tender ballads, and rousing pub songs.

Drawing from the immense wealth of traditional Irish, Scottish and English music, Greenhouse combines those influences with contemporary and original material. Acoustic guitar, fiddle, mandolin and tin whistle meet with percussion, didgeridoo and thrilling vocal harmonies in a Celtic fusion that is sometimes hard-driving, sometimes mellow. Their original arrangements bring a creative, modern edge to time-honored material.

This performance is free and open to the pubic, sponsored by the Friends of the Sonoma Valley Library.
