Carpe Diem Arts Presents Slow Down Tommy


Carpe Diem Arts Presents Slow Down Tommy: Celtic, European and Old-Time Music & Irish Step-Dance
for St. Patrick’s Day. The event will take place at Talbot County Senior Center on March 13, 2018, 12:15 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Slow Down Tommy paddles the rivers of traditional music, drinks deeply from the wellspring of old field recordings, and emerges with bellyfuls of historical knowledge and an artistic taste all their own. They draw from Irish, European and old-time American dance tunes and ballads, highlighting the genres’ commonalities and differences through sensitive and unconventional arrangements. Band members include Marty Frye (Irish flute), David McKindley-Ward (guitar), Jonathan Een Newton (cello/fiddle) and Anders Fahey (clawhammer banjo) — along with special guest Corinne Ducey, Irish stepdancer.

The monthly Second Tuesday Carpe Diem series of 45-minute performances are FREE and open to the public.
 Lunch is available at 12 noon for $2.75 (with one week advance reservation). RSVP: 410-822-2869 /

This program is made possible by the generous support of the Talbot County Arts Council with revenues provided by the Maryland State Arts Council, and by the Mid-Shore Community Foundation (MSCF), Dock Street Foundation, Brookletts Place, the Artistic Insights Fund, and by individual contributions to the Carpe Diem Arts Outreach Fund/MSCF.
