"Arising" at Godfrey's: Tommy Sands, "The Bard of Peace," above left, with his son, Fionan, brings his "music of healing" to Godfrey Daniels, 7 E. Fourth St., Bethlehem, 8 p.m. March 8. Sands' United States' tour, "Arising from the Troubles," March 3 - 17, is named for his most recent album. In addition to songs from the album, the concert features classics of Northern Ireland, including "There Were Roses" and the evening's theme song, written with Pete Seeger, "The Music of Healing." Sands and Seeger each contributed a verse, with Sands writing the finale. His U.S. tour marks the 15-year anniversary of Northern Ireland's Good Friday Agreement, the culmination of a peace process in which Sands and his songs played an important part. The tour stops at universities and concert halls in the Northeast, including Symphony Space on New York's Upper West Side, but only one folk club, Godfrey Daniels, billed as "An Intimate Evening with Tommy Sands." Tickets: godfreydaniels.org, 610-867-2390
