The Old Blind Dogs perform in Fallon

The Scots band The Old Blind Dogs will perform a return engagement in Fallon today in the Barkley Theatre at Oats Park Art Center, Fallon.

The fiery Scots of this dynamic quintet have been called one of the best living examples of the humor, passion and majesty that imbues Celtic music.

This will be their only Nevada appearance. Doors will open at 7 p.m., performance at 8 p.m. and there will be a no-host bar. All seating is reserved and tickets are $17 for CAC members, $20 for nonmembers. Tickets are available in Fallon at Jeff’s Copy Express and Postage Plus. Call (775) 423-1440.
