Roger Helfrick, baritone and Celtic harp player, is offering a concert on Saturday, Nov. 5 at the Cumberland United Church.

The concert is entitled BARD, and features Helfrick’s voice accompanied by Celtic lever harp, medieval plucked psaltery, and guitar.  Music from western Europe and the British Isles, mingled with Helfrick’s own songs, will explore the themes of nature, myth, humour, love, and death.
