Cynthiana may be a far way from Ireland, but Celtic music won’t be hard to find in town Sunday.

Co-sponsored by the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library and the Cynthiana Arts Council, ‘The Muses,’ a Celtic folk art band will perform at Rohs Opera House this Sunday at 2 p.m.

“They put on a great show,” said library adult programming coordinator Cindy Franklin. “This is for everyone... it’s a family fun event.”

The Lexington Step Dancers, including Lesa Palmer from Harrison County, will take the Rohs stage first on Sunday afternoon.

“They’re going to be doing four routines before ‘The Muses’ go on,” Franklin said.

Franklin said ‘The Muses’ packed performance at the library two years ago prompted her to search for a larger location.

“Rohs Opera House is providing the venue for us,” Franklin said.

A wife and husband team, Matthew Gurnsey and Tanya Brody of ‘The Muses’ use a variety of instruments during their performance, including a harp, guitar, dulcimer, Bodhran, Zils, penny whistle and mandolin.

“It’s all a cappella...” Franklin said. “They only use their microphones, their voices and their instruments.”

Sunday’s performance is free to the public.
