Civil War Irish Music performed live by Jeff and Jan Ausfahl of “Slateford Creek” band
In celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day, our meeting will be a fun evening of live Civil War Irish and popular music
performed by Jeff and Jan Ausfahl of the “Slateford Creek” band. Whether you enjoy classics such as Wild Rover
or Whiskey in the Jar, or the toe tapping rhythms of Irish jigs and reels, this will be an enjoyable meeting
celebrating music popular during the Civil War.
Jeff Ausfahl’s first banjo job was on Broadway in New York City in the 1980’s. Since then he has devoted himself
to the unique tuning of the Irish banjo and octave mandolin. He has a master’s degree in classical guitar from
Montclair State University and has toured America, Europe, and the South Pacific extensively.
Folk instruments have always fascinated Jan Ausfahl and she has incorporated the Irish tin whistle, the Italian
tamburello, the English concertina, and even the Colombian maracas into her Celtic music.
Slateford Creek is just two people but comes with lots of interesting, worldly sounds! Come have a pleasurable
evening listening to them!
