Seats available for concert

Good seats are available for the Gaelic Storm concert Feb. 23. The Central Lakes College Cultural Arts Series is sponsoring the only out-state appearance by the internationally acclaimed Celtic band Gaelic Storm. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Tornstrom Auditorium at the Washington Education Building in Brainerd. The venue accommodates about three times as many guests as the series’ home site of John Chalberg Theatre on the CLC campus. The concert will be a celebration of Irish culture as well as a medium of connection for Irish-Americans who have at least some Irish blood in them. While Gaelic Storm plays Celtic music that harkens back to the traditional music of Ireland, they are hardly traditionalists, adding modern sounds and drawing influences from American rock and pop as well as music styles from around the world. Admission to the Feb. 23 concert is $16 for adults, $12 for ages 60-up, $8 for high school and junior high students, and $5 for CLC students. Tickets are on sale at the CLC box office (218-855-8199) and online at www.clctickets.com
