Celtic recording artist Colleen Raney will visit Langley for a special concert with local singer Timothy Hull on Friday.

Raney is known as one of the best young Celtic singers of her generation, and has been inspired by the Irish and Scottish songs and tunes that she grew up with as a member of the multi-talented Raney family and alongside the world renowned harp and dulcimer duo Magical Strings.

Raney, who has recently released her second album, "Lark," makes her home in Portland, Ore. where she fronts a band of powerhouse Irish musicians that include, in various combinations, Casey Neill, Hanz Araki, Zak Borden, Matt Jerrell, Cary Novotny, Johnny Connolly, Dave Cory and Colm MacCárthaigh.  Joining her in Langley will be Casey Neill (Casey Neill & The Norway Rats, KMRIA) and mandolin virtuoso Zak Borden.

The show is 7 p.m. Friday at the South Whidbey Commons Coffeehouse Bookstore on Second Street.

There is no cover for the all-ages show, but tips are welcome to cover travel costs.
