Celtic music group “Watch the Sky!” will perform from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 19, at the Hazel Miller Plaza on the corner of Fifth Avenue South and Maple Street.

The group has been a consistent presence in the Seattle area folk music scene since 1991.

Jan and Chris Glanister and Joe Wagner bring Celtic verve to traditional, contemporary and original ballad and pub songs.

Rich, tight vocal harmonies are their trademark and are backed by driving rhythms and sweet whistle riffs.

Wagner’s rock-influenced guitar playing brings a contemporary drive to the group’s Celtic sound while Jan Glanister beats bodhran and dumbec.

Chris Glanister plays penny whistles, mandolin, bohdran and cittern.
