Join us for the second Summer Arts Festival Outdoor Concert where we will feature the award-winning Irish folksinger, musician, and entertainer, Mr. Gerry Timlin! Sit back, relax, and listen to the beautiful voice of this consummate entertainer.
A great favorite in the USA and Canada, this Pennsylvania-based singer has enjoyed success all over the world. Gerry was born in Ireland where he developed an early interest in traditional Irish music and, from a young age, he displayed a natural musical talent. Over the years, Gerry’s love of music expanded to include Scottish, American, Canadian, and Australian folk music as well. He moved to the USA in the early seventies, where he has been delighting audiences with his rich baritone vocals, instrumental talent, and his irreverent humor ever since. He has been playing his special brand of folk music before adoring audiences for more than four decades in Ireland and the British Isles, the United States and Canada.
Gerry continues to grow as a performer, his beautiful baritone sounding richer and better every year. He continues to perform at selected festivals and other venues. New songs find their way into his repertoire and old favorites resurface. If you’ve never heard him before or if you’ve heard him a thousand times, he loves to engage his audience and never fails to entertain.
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, picnics, and families for a warm summer evening of music on the Virginia Tech Campus in Blacksburg, Virginia! (Rainsite: Old Dominion Ballroom, Squires Student Center.)
