An evening of Celtic and Celtic-inspired Tunes and Songs
Johnny B. Connollys talents have brought him across continents, performing and recording with internationally renowned artists Kevin Burke and The Chieftains. Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, Johnny has been immersed in Irish traditional music since he was eight years old. By the age of 15 he was performing with musicians twice his age and at just 17 he earned a slot with the acclaimed Celtic group Anam. For the next two years, he continued to build his reputation in Dublins trad scene and abroad with Anam, appearing throughout Europe and Ireland.

In 1996 Johnny left Anam and crossed the Atlantic, performing in New York City and Boston before heading west to live in Portland, Oregon. There, a friendship with Kevin Burke, legendary Irish fiddler and fellow Portlander, led to Johnnys recording Bridgetown. Named for his adopted home, Bridgetown is a sparkling collection of Irish and French tunes and includes guest appearances by Burke, Skip Parente, Jim Chapman, and Aidan Brennan.

Casey Neill has performed throughout the world on stages such as New Yorks Town Hall, San Franciscos Great American Music Hall, and Glasgows Old Fruitmarket. He has played as a member of the Minus Five as well as sharing stages with Jello Biafra, Pete Seeger, Sunny Day Real Estate, Camper Van Beethoven, & countless more.

Following a few years residence in New York City, Casey moved back to Portland and its thriving music community. The Norway Rats formed in 2007 to tour behind his album Brooklyn Bridge (In Music We Trust label), followed by the acclaimed Goodbye to the Rank and File and All You Pretty Vandals.  Caseys most recent project is Big Bridges, a collaboration with Kathryn Claire, Japanese guitar wizard Takashi OHashi, Allen Hunter, and Joe Trump.

The Peninsula Arts Center is located at 504 Pacific Ave. N., Long Beach, WA.

Wine, beer, and other refreshments are available for purchase.

Concerts benefit the Long Beach Peninsula Acoustic Music Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
