Celtic Fiddle Festival: Two Shows 7:30 and 9:30
FIRST SHOW IS SOLD OUT.  SOME TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT THE DOOR FOR 9:30. (DOORS FOR SECOND SHOW ARE 9pm)

Again, a group eschewing the big theater for the intimate Backroom.  We don't take this for granted and your support of the series has made it possible.  

Called "three of the finest folk violinists anywhere" by The Washington Post, Celtic Fiddle Festival celebrates the violin in all its globe-trotting variations.  Fiddlers Kevin Burke (Ireland), Christian LemaĆ®tre (Brittany, France) and Charlie McKerron (Scotland) showcase a fascinating juxtaposition of international and individual styles. With the able and agile accompaniment of Nicolas Quemener (Brittany, France) you have a perfect storm of the finest Celtic music your ears will ever encounter.  

These are two shows and both will sell our rock solid, so act soon when they go on sale on May 7th at 10AM.



The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world.  It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.  

Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music.  As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.

Tickets prices vary, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members.  If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code.

Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
