Famed Celtic-Americana-Roots Duo Switchback in Elk Rapids

Have a blue ... grass Christmas
By Lynda Wheatley | Dec. 3, 2021

Ya like a wee bit of the Celtic music, do ya, Lad? Then take a dooter on down to the Historic Elk Rapids Town Hall on Saturday, Dec. 11. The much-lauded Brian FitzGerald and Martin McCormack of the duo Switchback are bringing their multiple-award-winning brand of eclectic Celtic, bluegrass, and Americana Roots music to the village just in time for some toe-tappin’, heel-stomping, ear-lovin’ fun. Haven’t a baldy notion who they are? Switchback has been playing at concert halls, performing arts centers, and festivals around the world for almost 30 years. Trust us, this one is a big deal. Tickets are available at Corner Drugs in Elk Rapids, Oryana’s 10th St. location in Traverse City, and at brownpapertickets.com.
