Legends of the Celtic Harp, a trio of Celtic harpists, will perform a concert and storytelling event titled "A Winter Gift" 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis, 2945 NW Circle Blvd.
"A Winter Gift" features the trio of Patrick Ball, Lisa Lynne and Aryeh Frankfurter. They will perform Celtic legends, along with Irish and English literature woven together with beloved and rare pieces of holiday music.
This trio is known for their first show, "Legends of the Celtic Harp," which tells stories and legends of the harp through time.
