On Sunday, March 3 from 3 to 5 p.m. at Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, 2979 Coloma St. in Placerville, the Cahersiveen Irish Band will perform a benefit concert for the preservation fund of the beautiful and historical church.

Church of Our Saviour is the oldest church in continuous operation in El Dorado County and is in its 152nd year.

This will be a fun and lively event featuring this group from Sacramento with a repertoire ranging from simple old Irish songs and American folk classics to hard-driving, edgy, Scottish and Breton jigs and reels.

Cahersiveen was founded by Marta Quinn in 2003 and ranks among the top Celtic bands in Northern California.

Quinn, who continues to direct the band, plays the bodhran, an Irish hand-held drum, and Irish concertina. She has performed in area Celtic festivals, pubs and upon invitation performed internationally at the annual Festival for Music and the Arts in County Kerry, Ireland.

Other band members include Ingrid Peters on fiddle and doing vocals and Dr. Cathie Apple on flute.

Peters is a unique violinist and vocalist who has built an impressive career in music performance, composition, improvisation and education.

Apple plays a wide range of music including playing with the Sacramento Baroque Soloists, Camerata Capistrano Baroque ensemble, as well as being an avid supporter of new music performing regularly at the Festival of New American Music in Sacramento.

Guitarist Gabe Stivala also performs a wide variety of musical styles including jazz, folk tango, and Celtic music. His most recent work, in addition to Cahersiveen, includes playing with Veranda Swing and the Philharmonic Jazz Trio.

Andy Rubin will be joining the band on banjo for this performance. He is co-founder of The Freilachmakers Klezmer String Band, a Sacramento-based ensemble.

All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the church’s preservation fund.

Tickets are $15 each or $30 per family with children and are available from Tom and Lee Weikert at 530-644-0382 or at the El Dorado Arts Council, 459 Main St. in Placerville. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door. Parking is at the rear of the church or in the main city parking lot with access by walking across the bridge over Highway 50.
