Folk rock tribute act Scarborough Fair begins Craig Concert Association season
The 2017-18 Craig Concert Association begins this month with “The Sound of Silence,” as well as plenty more sounds inspired by the group that popularized that song.
The CCA season kicks off at 7 p.m. Sept. 26 at Moffat County High School, 900 Finley Lane, with a performance by “Scarborough Fair: A Simon and Garfunkel Experience.”
The act consists of siblings Jeb and Jock Guthrie, who pay tribute to the title folk rock duo and their acoustic sensibilities, working in special stories, trivia and humor that provides a full show for the crowd.
Season tickets are currently available for the Craig Concert Association and are $40 for adults, $35 for seniors, $90 for a family or $10 for students, which includes membership and admission for the entire season. The cost for non-members is $20 per show for adults and $10 for students.
Members who are paid-up should have their tickets in the mail a week before the opening show.
Also on the schedule for this fall and spring 2018 are the internationally renowned Anderson Brothers Jazz Combo on Oct. 24, multi-genre act Alias Brass Company on March 24 and Cahal Dunne’s “Grand to Be Irish Show” on April 28.
