Four Leaf Peat performing Irish music at Heritage Center's Fall Concert Series

TOWNSEND, TN – Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center's "Fall Concert Series" will conclude with a performance by traditional Irish music by Four Leaf Peat on September 21.

four leaf peat

Four Leaf Peat (FLP) was born out of the Irish traditional music scene in Knoxville, and is dedicated to honoring and preserving the spirit of Irish music. While grounded in tradition and influenced by Ireland's traditional pipers, fiddlers and singers, FLP also bows a hat to the more recent innovators of Irish music such as The Bothy Band, Planxty, Dervish and Lunasa.

The band is comprised of Chad Beauchaine on fiddle; Gil Draper on guitar, bouzouki and mandolin; Rick Hall on hammer dulcimer, vocals and bodhrán; and Jason Herrera on vocals, bodhrán, flute and whistle. Among their more notable performances were appearances at Dollywood's 2007 and 2008 "Festival of Nations".

Whether it's lively jigs and reels, slow airs, or songs, the spirit that gave birth to Irish traditional music can be felt in every set.

The Fall Concert Series is sponsored by Friends of the Heritage Center. Admission to each concert is $5.00 per person at the door, with Heritage Center members admitted free. Food and beverage concessions are available for purchase on site. No coolers, food, drink, or pets are allowed.
