The musical duo Castlebay returned to Salisbury this week for an evening of Celtic music and poetry.
The Friends of the Rowan Public Library and the Cheerwine Concert Series sponsored the concert at the library.
For their second appearance in Salisbury, Julie Lane and Fred Gosbee — the duo known as Castlebay — took the audience on “a musical journey through time and across the Atlantic blending history, legend and experience. The show, titled “Robert Burns: The Man, the Myth and the Music,” is on a six-week tour that will take the performers from their coastal home in Maine along the East Coast to Florida and back again.
They performed the songs of Burns and recited some of his poetry, filling in the gaps with stories about the colorful womanizer and writer of 18th-century Scottish poetry and songs.
