Patriot Day Tattoo

The City of West Jordan is holding a Patriot Day Tattoo Friday, September 11th. This “tattoo” is not designed to be imprinted on skin but rather in the hearts of those who take part in this sensory feast. The Patriot Day Tattoo is patterned after the world-famous Edinburgh, Scotland Tattoo where pipe bands, drummers, military regiments, dancers have performed. The West Jordan Patriot Day Tattoo will remember Patriot Day with a 1,500-flag Healing Field, pipe bands, drum corps, the 23rd Army Band, Highland Dancers, a joint service color guard and other entertainment. A marketplace with arts, crafts, and ethnic foods opens at 5:00 p.m. and can be enjoyed before and during the Tattoo entertainment. For more information, call Julie Brown at (801) 569-5119.

Irish Fiddle Virtuoso, Martin Hayes

Returning to Ogden to open the 2009-20 Cultural Affairs season are Irish fiddle virtuoso, Martin Hayes, and American guitarist, Dennis Cahill. The duo has garnered international renown for taking traditional Irish music to the very edge of the genre, holding listeners spellbound with slow-building, fiery performances.

Martin Hayes is regarded as one of the most extraordinary talents to emerge in the world of Irish traditional music. His unique sound, his mastery of his chosen instrument – the violin – his acknowledgement of the past and his shaping of the future of the music, combine to create an astonishing and formidable artistic intelligence. He is the recipient of major national and international awards: most recently the prestigious Gradam Ceoil, Musician of the Year 2008 from the Irish language television station TG 4; previously Man of the Year from the American Irish Historical Society; Folk Instrumentalist of the Year from BBC Radio; a National Entertainment Award (the Irish ‘Grammy’); six All-Ireland fiddle championships – before the age of nineteen – and cited by the Irish Sunday Tribune as one of the hundred most influential Irish men and women in the fields of entertainment, politics and sports in the year 2000, as well as one of the most important musicians to come out of Ireland in the last fifty years.
