Lone Raven returns to Marion campus

The Ohio State University at Marion’s Five Nights on Campus performing arts series welcomes Lone Raven back to Morrill Hall Auditorium by popular demand, Thursday, November 14, at 7:30 p.m.

Garnering rave reviews wherever they perform, Lone Raven is rapidly becoming one of the top bands in the Midwest. Performing an eclectic blend of traditional music from the Celtic Lands and various areas of the world, the band continually delights audiences with everything from heartfelt Irish ballads to exhilarating Gypsy folk tunes to passionate instrumentals and a collection of their own award-winning original compositions.

With over twenty instruments on stage, Lone Raven truly soars. The instrumentals are fueled by the twin fiddles of Elizabeth Blickenstaff and Kara Markley Sterling, while being driven by an explosive rhythm section consisting of Craig Markley and the award-winning guitar playing of Neil Jacobs. In addition, Kara’s breathtaking and expressive vocals are featured throughout each performance, with Elizabeth and Craig adding the perfect harmonic blend.

According to Celtic Roots, “From fiery reels to Gypsy fiddle tunes of Romania to haunting airs, Lone Raven does it all and does it very well!”
