Christine Anderson will be playing Things Celtic this Saturday from noon until 2pm. She is a classically trained musician who is self-taught on her 25-string lever harp. She plays traditional Celtic tunes as well as folk melodies and festive selections. Christine resides in Stephenville, where she plays at the Senior Center, in churches, for clubs and various events, including By-gone Days on the Bosque in 2016 and 2017, and the Valentine's Musical in 2017 and 2018. She has 11 children and teaches piano and violin. She has been mistaken for being a "CD" a couple times! Come to Dublin on Small Business Saturday and find treasures while the music sets your spirit at ease!
This event is free and we'd love to see you here!

The Celtic Cross is a symbol that combines a traditional Christian cross with a ring or circle surrounding the intersection; the cross' lower stem being longer than the other three intersections. This style of cross can be found in all Celtic nations, as well as other European countries. In the early days of Celtic Christianity, the Celtic Cross design was often used as a design basis for high crosses – large outdoor free-standing crosses made of stone and often richly decorated. Examples of these monumental stone high crosses began in the 8th century, possibly even earlier. Early versions of high crosses were probably made in wood, perhaps faced in metalwork. Some high crosses were erected just outside churches and monasteries; others at sites that may have marked town squares, boundaries, or crossroads.
