FORUM Feast: St. Patrick's Day with Low Water Bridge

Celebrate St. Patrick and the Irish with FORUM!

9:00pm - Low Water Bridge set

Tickets: $10 Advance | $15 Day-of |Kids under 12 are FREE!

In addition to the FORUM cash bar, there will be Irish food available for purchase.

Low Water Bridge is a band based in Virginia.. Amazing vocals and harmonies soar over inspired playing in a set list of diverse folk, Celtic and country/Americana music. The band takes the likes of traditional music and artists such as Loreena McKennitt, Alison Krauss, The Corrs, The High Kings, The Beatles and Johnny Cash and blends it all into something new and inspiring.

Ben-David Warner is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter with roots in Celtic, Classical, and Folk music. For four years he was a member of the Celtic Americana Band Scythian, which Nashville's Music City Roots says is "what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling." Trained on the classical violin, Ben-David plays the banjo, fiddle, viola, guitar, and mandolin. Ed Helms’s The Bluegrass Situation praises his new Scythian song “Built These Walls” as a “blue-collar ballad we can all get behind.”
