Exciting Celtic/World Band "Mithril" to Perform at
Friday Night's Barbeque and Seafood Social in Fairhope
September 2, 2004

Friday, Oct. 15, is promising to be an exciting night for the Alabama Coastal BirdFest. The beautiful James P. Nix Center in Fairhope is the site for a barbecue and seafood social, a silent auction, and a presentation by Dr. Van Remsen, Curator of Birds at the LSU Museum of Natural Science in Baton Rouge. The night will also feature music by Mithril, a group that is fast becoming one of the most sought after Celtic/World music bands in the Southeast.

Mithril drew record-setting crowds to their Mobile Symphony Chamber Series performances in 2003 and 2004 and were featured on the 2003 Celtic Nations Festival in New Orleans (with an invitation to return for the 2004 festival). They will be special featured guests with Mobile Symphony for "A Celtic Christmas Pops Concert" in December 2004. The band’s second CD, A Winter’s Day, is scheduled for release in November 2004.

Music from Mithril begins at 5:30. "We wanted something special to entertain guests as they are arriving for dinner that night and while they are looking over the great silent auction items. I can’t think of a better group for this evening than Mithril. We are very pleased that they will be joining us," said Dr. John Borom, one of the organizers of the Alabama Coastal BirdFest.

Advance registration is required for all BirdFest tours and dinners. Register for this or any Alabama Coastal BirdFest event here or by calling 251-990-0423. For more information on Mithril, visit their web site at mithril.flyingfrogmusic.com.
