Atlantic Crossing brings lively Celtic mix to Salisbury


On Friday, July 29, at 7:30 p.m., the Salisbury Summer Performance Series will host the return of Atlantic Crossing to Salisbury. Viveka Fox (fiddle, bodhran, djembe), Peter Macfarlane (fiddle, whistles, mandolin, vocals), and Rick Klein (guitar, vocals) will bring their lively mix of songs drawn from Celtic traditions and Maritime and French Canada, New England lore from the likes of Middlebury’s Helen Hartness Flanders Collection, and original songs based on local history. Designated American Masterpiece Artists by the Vermont Arts Council and Vermont Folklife Center for their contributions to the state’s heritage, they preserve our folk traditions through their distinctively rollicking, joyous performances marked by rich harmonies, driving rhythms, and abiding sense of fun.

Because of the need to utilize the piano, these concerts will occur indoors. Guests are asked to wear a mask unless fully vaccinated, and welcome those who prefer to remain masked even though they are fully inoculated. 

This will be the fifth of eight concerts in Salisbury’s 42nd Summer Performance Series, which will run through August 25 at the historic, but handicapped accessible, 1838 meetinghouse in Salisbury Village. There is no admission charge; a free-will donation in support of the series will be appreciated.


Aug. 12 — Point Counterpoint Music Camp Faculty Ensemble.

Aug. 19 — Zachariah Burrows, piano.

Aug. 25 — TBA
