Ballads of the West and Celtic Tradition come to Ludlow Auditorium

Saturday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. — LUDLOW — Saturday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. will be a very special time for the Black River area. Two of the most celebrated singers of the true western and Celtic tradition will grace the stage at Ludlow’s Town Hall Auditorium, Skip Gorman and Connie Dover.

Cowboy singer Skip Gorman explores music from one of the most romanticized periods in American history: the days of the cattle drives and westward expansion. He strips away Hollywood glitz and Nashville affectations to show the beauty of the music as sung and played along emigrant trails and in camps over a century ago.

Skip’s singing partner, Emmy award-winning soprano Connie Dover, was described by the Boston Globe as “the finest folk ballad singer this country has produced since Joan Baez . . . ”

Tickets for the performance are $15 and may be purchased prior to the performance at;  or at the door on the evening of the concert.
