Turner Collins was born in 1960 in Nacogdoches, Texas, and was raised in a folk-music family. He began his journey into the Celtic roots of the Ozarks music and culture while in his teens. At that time he discovered a group of like-minded people of various generations who enjoyed Celtic and Ozarks folk music traditions. Turner began his performing career with the Chameleon Puppet Theater in the early-1980s and progressed to the festivals and fine arts series he enjoys today. Turner performs on whistle, bombarde, bodhran (Irish drum), button accordion, and harp. He will perform with three others who will play the Irish harp, squeezebox, and bouzouki (long-necked mandolin) with English & Gaelic singing. Join us on Thursday, March 17th at 10:30 AM. Lunch will be corned beef, boiled potatoes, boiled cabbage & carrots, green applesauce, rye bread and St. Pat’s cookie! To make reservations, call 835-5801.
