OLD FORGE — Celtic band Triskele will perform a concert at View, 3273 Route 28, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 15.

Tickets are $20, $15 for View members.

This two-set concert will take place in Gould Hall. Triskele, [pronounced Tris-Kay-lee] is an all-female Celtic band based out of Albany. They are known for their stunning harmonies, melodic grasp of the Gaelic language, and their Irish wit. These ladies perform traditional, original, and modern Celtic/Irish music. The band not only revitalizes the Gaelic language, but weaves history and traditions about growing up in Ireland into their music, lending a deeper significance to the aural history.

The band was first conceived at Albany Medical Center in the winter of 2009. Noeleen Druckenmiller (Whelan), a Dublin-born native, connected with co-worker Sharon Wheeler, a native of the Capital District, and soon after Triskele was formed. A year later Jennifer Kilinski was added on flute, percussion, and vocals.
