World Music Series Event

All World Music Series events are free and open to the public.

As they approach their 50th anniversary in 2018, the Tannahill Weavers are one of Scotland's premier traditional bands.

Their diverse repertoire spans the centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads and lullabies. Their music demonstrates, to old and young alike, the rich and varied musical heritage of the Celtic people. These versatile musicians have received worldwide accolades consistently over the years for their exuberant performances and outstanding recording efforts.

The Tannahills have that unique combination of traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable. As the Winnipeg Free Press noted, "The Tannahill Weavers – properly harnessed – could probably power an entire city for a year on the strength of last night's concert alone. The music may be old time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll."

BW's Academic and Cultural Events Series (ACES) is highlighted by the World Music Series, featuring globally diverse musicians who often bring colorful cultural costumes, authentic indigenous instruments, and, always, exceptional artistry. ACES helps to coordinate BW's annual observances for Martin Luther King Jr. Week, Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month, too.
