Bedford Historical Society & Museum presents: Soupcon! An Irish Celebration

Soupcon with Celtic Rush

Music starts at 7:00PM at the Old Church on the Commons, Lower Community Hall.

This evening the Bedford Historical Society & Museum welcomes Celtic Rush, a traditional Irish band with a non-traditional twist. They are a group of friends who have enjoyed performing throughout Northeast Ohio as well as West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The group performs with a variety of instruments including fiddle, guitars, tin whistle, upright bass, mandolin, and Irish drum (bodhran). Their music repertoire includes Irish and Scottish jigs, reels, hornpipes, waltzes and polkas, sometimes adding some unexpected non-traditional favorites. They have a sound that is fun and entertaining and gets people dancing!

All proceeds will benefit the BHS&M. The cost is $10 per person or $18 for two at the door.

Google defines “soupcon” as a very small amount; a hint; a trace; a slight idea: or inkling. With that in mind, we invite you to join us for just a touch of something special, but not too much, just enough …an appreciable mite of nourishment, enjoyment, fellowship, and illumination. Although the BHS&M event staff and volunteers are still busy planning these events for the coming year, Soupcon will serve up a light seasonal repast with some cheerful entertainment. Each Soupcon will offer something different. A jot of Irish stew and music for March; a touch of brown or yellow mustard and hot dogs to kickoff Elmer Flick Day and the “Boys of Summer” in April; and finally a special mother-daughter-granddaughter spring fete with Heather Rhoades and a tinge of Wedding soup.

Have an idea for an event? This is a great way to get involved. The BHS&M are always looking for event planners and party throwers. Contact Louise Novak ( or call 216-870-3999 to discuss volunteer opportunities.
