Irish and Celt music for “Spirits and Soul” Concert

Date(s) - March 02, 2018
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

In honor of our Irish and Scottish immigrant ancestors, we will feature the melodic sounds of John Sherman and Randy Clepper.

John Sherman and Randy Clepper are two acclaimed performers of Irish traditional music from central Ohio. Both are consummate multi-instrumentalists, and together they perform arranged Irish and Celtic tunes on fingerstyle guitar, bouzouki, and tenor banjo. John and Randy’s latest recording, “Finally Tuned,” has been described as “a fine and finely tuned album that is intricate in its arrangement and delivery” (, Ireland) and was ranked in the top 10 in three instrumental album categories in 2013 by Folk Festival, WDCB Public Radio, Chicago. John and Randy were featured as Official Showcase Artists at the 2017 Southeast Regional Folk Alliance (SERFA) in Montreat, NC, Quad Showcase Artists at the 2014 Northeast Folk Alliance (NERFA) in New York and as Performance Lane Showcase Artists at Folk Alliance Regional Midwest (FARM) in 2013. Regular performers for over a decade at the Dublin Irish Festival, Dublin, Ohio, they have appeared on WYSO’s Dear Green Place and are frequently featured on WCBE’s Toss the Feathers.
