One of the young Turks of the traditional music scene in Ireland and Britain, Nuala Kennedy comes to us with her dynamic band and a brand new album.
For many of us, this will be a first time seeing this young flute player and singer live. She is gaining a lot of positive recognition for her innovative approach steeped in the northern tinged music and song of her native Dundalk, in Co. Louth.
This will be a rollicking night!
The Burren Backroom series is not quite a year old but has created already many memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Masachusetts.
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 are $23 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members. If you are a member, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the code.
Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
