February 22, 2007

MILWAUKEE - The Hunt Family Fiddlers, an award winning family of Irish step dancers, fiddlers and singers, perform in Wisconsin Lutheran College's Schwan Concert Hall Sunday, March 11, at 3 p.m. This family of nine performs Celtic, bluegrass, inspirational and popular tunes. Audiences love their high-powered step dancing, fast fiddling and vocal harmonies, as well as their other instrumental talents including drums, accordion keyboard and guitar.

The Hunt Family Fiddlers recently completed three seasons at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, producing and performing four different shows. This versatility and popularity led to the development of several themed shows, including "Riverdance and Celtic Favorites," "The Sound of Music," Italian favorites a la "O Sole Mio" and "Time to Say Goodbye," and "Fall Harvest Hoedown."

The Hunts have performed in Scotland, opened three consecutive years for the Virginia Symphony at the "Symphony under the Stars" concert and are now touring the nation in theatres, colleges, festivals, churches and various other venues.

The Hunt Family Fiddlers performance is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Arts Board. The performance will be held in the Schwan Concert Hall located in the college's Center for Arts and Performance at 8815 W. Wisconsin Ave. Tickets are $20 general, $18 seniors and $6 students. To purchase tickets, call the WLC box office at (414) 443-8802 or visit wlc.edu/arts.

Since 1996, the Wisconsin Lutheran College Center for Arts and Performance has been providing a comprehensive program of performing and visual arts and educational and community events for students and the people of southeastern Wisconsin.
