    Lunchtime Concert Series with Take Down the Door

    March 17, 2020, 12–1pm
    The free Lunchtime Concert Series happens every third Tuesday at the Boulder Public Library's Canyon Theater. In March, powerhouse Celtic band Take Down the Door is on the bill. The name references the old Irish tradition of taking the door off its hinges and throwing it down on the cottage floor when it was time for a party. Based in Lyons, Colorado, this high-energy quintet features former Gaelic Storm fiddler Jessie Burns, bassist Eric Thorin, Colorado's foremost Celtic fiddle-and-guitar duo Adam Agee and Jon Sousa and singer/percussionist Beth Gadbaw.
