Second Wind opens season of Ravencourt concerts

Music in the Courtyard series begins with Celtic band this Saturday in Passmore.

Saturday sees the return of the Music in the Courtyard series at Ravencourt B&B in Passmore.

On that day, beginning at 7 p.m. you’ll be introduced to Second Wind, a duo of accomplished musicians based in northwest Montana’s Flathead Valley. They feature a cartload of stringed and wind instruments, playing Celtic music ranging from the very traditional to the very new.

The duo consists of Jason Foy, a lifelong musician whose artistry on flute and whistles anchors this duo and Barbara Calm whose hammered dulcimer drives the rhythm, dances lightly around a melody, and fills a room with warm vibrating sound.

Their background is in Celtic traditions and to these roots they remain true — most of the time. They find joy in experimental approaches to traditional tunes and continually find new inspiration from some great contemporary bands from Ireland and the British Isles. You can find out more about them at secondwindmontana.com.

As previous years have shown, the Ravencourt concerts have become very popular. It’s recommended to come earlier and enjoy the ambiance before the music begins. Admission is by donation with all proceeds going to the performers.

Ravencourt B&B is located at 4615  Upper Passmore  Rd. (ravencourtbandb.com). Turn off Highway 6 at Passmore, cross the bridge and follow the signs to pure musical enjoyment.
