Maeve Gilchrist and Keith Murphy
Talk about musicians having currency. These two are in serious demand for the musicality and also for their talents as artistic/musical directors.  Maeve is the Assistant Music Director for A Christmas Celtic Sojourn, and Keith has been music director for our St. Patrick's Day series for the past five years.  

Harp, vocals, Scotland, Ireland, guitar, mandolin, Newfoundland, Vermont, Cape Breton, Richard Thompson, original tunes, Quebecois, Acadian, percussion... all come to mind when I think of each of these folks.  Together, well the sky is the limit, but I do know that this is one of the shows I am most excited about this Fall.  Take a listen to the two tracks below...

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 are $23 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members.  If you are a member, send an e-mail to and we will send you the code.

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