Lux Bridge will continue Thursday night live music in the courtyard at The Brickyard, 343 Pine St., from 7 to 10 tonight.
The Brickyard began its music in the courtyard at the end of May, and has seen a positive response from customers ever since.
"It has been very well-received and we get a lot of compliments on the space and how it is orchestrated," said Tony Ecker, general manager of The Brickyard.
Lux Bridge, above, will perform from 7 to 10 tonight at The Brickyard, 343 Pine St. The Brickyard hosts live music in the courtyard outside its establishment each Thursday.
The outdoor performances are held on the building owner's property and done in conjunction with The Brickyard, according to Ecker.
When the weather gets colder, Ecker said they plan to move the performances inside the restaurant to continue to bring live music to their patrons over the winter months.
Lux Bridge, a three-piece instrumental Celtic group, will perform tonight and promote its new album, "Starting with the Finish," which was released in early July.
Lux Bridge is Kate Johnston, fiddle; Carl Kirby, guitar; and Jake Kline, drums and percussion.
"We are a Celtic-centered group, but we put our own feel to the traditional Irish and Scottish tunes," Johnston said. "A bluegrass feel, Cajun flavor and even some classical."
Johnston grew up in the Harrisburg area and has lived in Williamsport for the past eight years. She is a classically trained musician and plays with the Williamsport Symphony Orchestra. She also is a private violin and viola teacher.
The band formed in 2007 and has gone through a few lineup changes since that time. The current members have been playing together for about three years and each have very different influences that bring the band together.
"We like to just bring all sorts of different jazz references - Wild Asparagus, they really have the type of sound that we sort of like to bring out from. And also Gaelic Storm," Johnston said. "Karl comes from a swing and jazz background and Jake is everywhere from rock 'n' roll, heavy metal to fusion."
Johnston said the group does all of its own arrangements and incorporates only instruments and no vocals in the music.
Lux Bridge played the Spyglass Ridge Winery Celtic Festival in Sunbury last year and they also have a standing gig each Friday from 7 to 8 p.m. at Puirseil's Irish Pub in Lewisburg.
"We've been playing there for the past four years with an open jam session afterwards with Irish and traditional players and those interested in learning traditional Irish tunes," Johnston said.
Johnston said she loves to share her experience with others while she performs.
"I love to see people dancing or enjoying our music and it just makes me feel like I have a purpose. I light up," she said. "I've been told you can see the music going through me and the sheer joy because I love to play and I like people to experience that with me. And playing with the guys, we have so much fun and we always enjoy ourselves. It's gonna be a great show and The Brickyard is awesome!"
