BYU Folk Music Ensemble plans concert Nov. 11

The Folk Music Ensemble at Brigham Young University will be performing Thursday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. Tickets for the event are available online at byuarts.com or by contacting the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322.

The BYU Folk Music Ensemble, directed by Mark Geslison, consists of seven students who sing and play a variety of traditional folk instruments including the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, dulcimer, guitar, harmonica, accordion, bass and bodhran (a Celtic drum).

The group performs a wide array of musical genres including Appalachian folk, blues, bluegrass, Cajun, jazz, country, Celtic, French-Canadian and American New England styles, as well as other traditional American music.

The group was formed in 1982 to accompany BYU’s International Folk Dance Ensemble with live music on its international tours. The ensemble continues to play with the dancers but also performs regularly to local audiences.
