First on the program will be the BYU Celtic Ensemble, which will perform several traditional European tunes, such as “Sir Eglamore,” “The Cobbler’s Daughter” and “Aibreann.” BYU faculty member Mark Geslison’s arrangement of “Red-haired Boy” will also be featured.

Following the Celtic Ensemble, the BYU Bluegrass Ensemble is slated to feature a series of American melodies, including “He Will Listen to You” and the fiddle tunes “Gypsy Rag” and “Cotton-Patch Tag.” The group’s performance will conclude with an arrangement of “This Sad Song” by popular country singer Alison Krauss.
