Guitarists will play a Celtic Christmas

Celtic guitar masters Steve Baughman and Robin Bullock will put on their sixth Christmas-themed concert in Thomson's Depot.

The Activities Council of Thomson and WTHO radio will present the duo at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 9.

"They've developed a core group of fans here in town and with each passing year, the playing and the show just gets better and better," said Don Powers of the Activities Council.

Both musicians are music teachers and award-winning performers. Mr. Baughman is from California and Mr. Bullock lives in France. Mr. Powers said the two get together each year during the holiday season to visit friends in the Southern United States, and they form a little tour in the process.

Together they perform traditional Irish airs, jigs and compositions, Breton dances and Appalachian fiddle tunes finger-style on guitar, citterns and mandolins.

"They are individually huge talents, and so good at blending together this incredibly complicated guitar work, that it sounds simple and so smooth," Mr. Powers said. "It's the perfect antidote for the stressful hustle and bustle of Christmastime."

Mr. Powers said the Depot again will be set up nightclub-style with a few rows of seats in front and tables in the back, where people can bring their own food and refreshment.

Tickets are $12 in advance from the Thomson-McDuffie Chamber of Commerce, and $15 at the door. For more information, call 706-597-1000.
