MOUNT HOLLY, Vt. – On Saturday, Oct. 5, from 7-9 p.m., Four Shillings Short are coming to the Mount Holly Town Library, 26 Maple Hill Rd.

The Celtic, folk, and world music duo of Aodh Og O’Tuama from Cork, Ireland and Christy Martin from California, perform traditional and original music. “Eclectic and unpredictable are apt descriptions of this beguiling duo. Their repertoire joins together traditional Celtic tunes, Indian ragas and American mountain music into an intoxicating mash. Through their many albums and constant touring, they’ve become known for thwarting listeners’ expectations and finding common ground in genres not often associated with one another,” says Connect Savannah.

Touring in the U.S. and Ireland since 1997, Four Shillings Short are independent folk-artists who perform over 100 concerts a year, have released 13 recordings, and live as full-time troubadours traveling from town to town performing at music festivals, theaters and performing arts centers, folk societies, libraries, house concerts, and schools.
