**Special Program: A RavensFire Christmas, Monday, December 18**
Visit the St. Charles Public Library on Monday, December 18 at 10:30am to hear the RavensFire Band perform a selection of holiday music. Featured tunes will include new compositions and old classics to celebrate the season.
The RavensFire Band is well-known around the area for their energetic performances, beautiful vocal harmonies, and skilled instrumentals while playing and singing their unique collection of traditional world folk, bluegrass, vintage American favorites, and original music. Creating music on the mandolin, guitar, penny whistle, and bodhran, the talented group of musicians love to perform.
RavensFire has played dozens of venues and festivals through the years, including the main stages at festivals in Milwaukee, St. Paul, Emmetsburg, La Crosse, and Rochester. Their busy calendar includes performances at concerts, fairs and festivals, theater productions, churches, and public and private events.
Band members Larry and Melissa Schmidt live in St. Charles. They have been professional musicians ever since they met in the early 1970s. Their love of music has kept them happily singing and playing together, winning many music contests, and recording in Nashville, Las Vegas, and Dublin, Ireland. They have toured three times in Ireland, sharing their music with delighted audiences all along the way. They are joined by Judy Havelick of Rochester, who shines with a sturdy beat on the bodhran.
Come to the library and hear this talented group of musicians perform a delightful holiday concert.
