On Saturday, July 14 at 6:30 p.m., First Christian Church at Cascade & Platte is presenting another program in its “Hot Summer Nights – Music on the Labyrinth” series. The featured performers are the Swallowtail Celtic Trio – Randy Zombola, hammered dulcimer, Sandy Craddock, flute and Irish flute, and Dan Dameron, guitar. Their music moves from soulful tunes to rollicking dances. The program will be held outdoors on the labyrinth on the south side of the church, so bring a blanket or chairs. (The program will be moved indoors for inclement weather.) A free will offering will be taken.
Swallowtail enjoys playing Celtic/World music. Sandy Craddock is a Julliard trained musician who brings a unique and soulful style to the group. Dan Dameron is a talented guitarist/vocalist who, in addition to providing Swallowtail with a solid and energetic rhythm base, also performs extensively as a solo guitarist and vocalist around the Colorado Springs area. Randy Zombola has played the hammered dulcimer for over 30 years and has played in several Celtic groups during this time. He won the prestigious National Hammered Dulcimer Championship in Winfield Kansas in 1988. Swallowtail has played their eclectic and exciting brand of Celtic music for over 10 years.
