On Thursday, March 17, 2022, in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, the Walter Anderson Museum of Art in historic Ocean Springs, Mississippi continued its exciting, family-friendly series, Magic Hour. The popular series is based on the comments made by the world-renowned and celebrated artist-philosopher, Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965).
“It is approaching the magic hour before sunset, when all things are related…” – Walter Inglis Anderson
The mission of the Walter Anderson Museum of Art is : “…..to empower lifelong curiosity and connection to the natural world through the art of Walter Anderson and kindred artists.”
Founded in 1991, the museum is a keystone in the state’s cultural life and has brought visitors from around the world to its doors.
The quarterly after hours series provides a variety of activities including live music and free admission to the museum. On this particular evening, music was provided by The Old Ways, the husband-wife duo of Greg Johnson and Shaundi Wall, presently based out of Oxford, MS. This talented duo has been performing for over ten years across the United States, including at such events as 2015 Philly Folk Festival and annually at CelticFest Mississippi. The Old Ways blend their passion for Celtic music through tunes and songs both ancient and modern.
On their Facebook page, The Old Ways describes their music: “A harp tune that will move you to tears, a pub song that will have you drinking and singing along, a rebel song that will have you itching to fight, or a haunting melody that will make you see spirits.”
