Two concerts headline Castleton area: July 4 & 7

The Celtic ban Gypsy Reel will perform Saturday, July 4, at Crystal Beach, Route 30, in Bomoseen. The concert is part of the Castelton Concert on the Green summer series. The concert starts at 7 p.m.

With members from both sides of the Atlantic, Gypsy Reel is based in Ludlow.

The group has been together for over 16 years and have several commercial recordings. The band has played at folk festivals in England, Wales, and elsewhere in Europe, and Canada.

The concert is free and open to the public. In the event of inclement weather, the rain date will be the next evening, Sunday, July 5, at Crystal Beach.

On Tuesday, July 7, Boreal Tordu, a Canadian and New England-based band, will bring a northern or "boreal" sound to their return appearance on the Castleton Green in Castleton. The concert starts at 7 p.m.

The band's music brings to life the various influences of Maine's past; band members are on a cultural mission to make French live again. Boreal Tordu draws us into a preeminently New England French-inspired roots music and the coastal heritage of the northeast Atlantic.

The concert is free and open to the public. It will perform rain or shine. Rain site is the Casella Fine Arts Center at Castleton State College.
