Geoffrey Castle 2018 Celtic Celebration

Friday, March 16, 2018 | 8:00pm
The Lincoln Theatre, 712 S First St.   Mount Vernon, WA

REFA 2018 Geoffrey Castle Show Grab your tickets, wear your green, and prepare to be amazed by violin wizard Geoffrey Castle's Celtic Celebration! This amazing production sells out theaters across the Northwest, and Castle has been featured on Seattle Refined on KOMO 4, New Day Northwest on KING 5, and the Q13 Fox Morning Show. In its 13th year, Castle's Celtic Celebrations have become a Northwest tradition!

For this year's production, Castle is bringing the award-winning Seattle Irish Dance Company, his All-Star Celtic Night Band with Dan Connolly and special guests including Anacortes Town Crier Richard Riddell, Mt Vernon's own Don Wick as MC and bagpiper Don Scobie.

Castle's recent TEDx talk focused on his commitment to the value of arts and music education in the schools. He will be donating some of the proceeds of this concert to REFA's fund to help students with the costs of music lessons and instrument rentals. Money should never be a barrier for creativity and education, but with funding for the arts and music in our schools being cut so drastically it is more important than ever to support our students and music programs.

Geoffrey Castle will be performing at the Lincoln Theatre in Mount Vernon on Friday, March 16th in this special event sponsored by the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts. Please come out to support the arts and see an incredible performance by a local Northwest artist.

Rick Epting PhotoIn 2006, friends of the late Rick Epting formed the Rick Epting Foundation for the Arts and continued his legacy of supporting the Arts in Skagit County with a showcase of local talent and humor. Our mission is "to enhance the quality of life in Skagit County through the arts."

Rick Epting  was one of the founding members of both the Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation, the Skagit Performing Arts Council (SPAC), and appointed by the Governor to serve on the Washington State Arts Commission. He was also instrumental in the restoration campaign for the Lincoln Theatre and the planning and organization for McIntyre Hall in Mount Vernon. Rick was a proud supporter of Arts groups and organizations in Skagit County until his untimely death in August 2005.
