Castlebay will present Celtic music at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, at Chocolate Church, at 804 Washington St. in Bath.

Since 1986 Castlebay has been weaving together Maine’s nautical and British Isles legacies transporting their audience through time and across the Atlantic. Julia Lane and Fred Gosbee have loved and researched traditional music for most of their lives and blend history, legend and experience into their personable performances. Finely crafted ballads with evocative imagery and beautiful melodies depict Maine characters, history, and life close to the elemental beauty of the sea and shore. Their renditions of traditional and original songs are supported with Celtic harp, 12-string guitar, fiddle and woodwinds.

The duo Castlebay have studied the man, the myth, and the music. They have presented lectures and performances for concert series, elder hostels, libraries, and schools in New England, Maritime Canada, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and Florida.

In their program, romantic love songs are interspersed with lively dance tunes as well as poems and anecdotes about the Scotland’s National Poet.

Tickets cost $18 in advance or $22 day of show.
