In Celtic music

The annual Celtic Wonders concerts bring the tops in traditional and cutting-edge Celtic music to the Bryan Theatre of the N.C. Museum of Art in Raleigh, and this year's event, Saturday, Aug. 10, presents one extraordinary group that encompasses both. For three decades, The Battlefield Band has ranked among the foremost roots Celtic ensembles with their consistently fresh sound. The Battlefield Band's slogan, "forward with Scotland's past," neatly summarizes their innovative approach of blending the ancient and new, the bagpipe and the synthesizer. Tickets are $15 (museum members $12); $5 for ages 2-12. Call 715-5923 or visit for details. --Art Menius
