Event

The Duhks
Formed in 2002 in Canada, The Duhks soon became recognized as one of the more dynamic, more agressive, more "punky" bands of the new wave of roots-based contemporary music. During a period of many personnel changes, several critically acclaimed albums, and quite a number of touring miles, the Duhks still retained that edge.  Earlier this year, they announced that....  "The Duhksfeaturing original lead vocalist Jessee Havey, fiddler Tania Elizabeth, Jordan McConnell on guitar, Scott Senior on percussion, and Leonard Podolak on banjowill be going into the studio in March to start work on a new CD. We plan to sell a five or six-song EP throughout the spring and summer and finish the CD in the autumn, for wider release.", along with a list of upcoming tour dates.

YES!!! And the Burren is on the list!  What a re-union this promises to be.  If you are already a Duhks fan you know what you are in for.  If not, come on out for a rollicking treat in the special intimacy of this special room.

The Burren Backroom series launched in October of 2011 but has already created 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, Massachusetts. DeDanann, Dervish, Teada, The Teetotalers, Lunasa, Robbie O'Connell, Sean Tyrrell, the list is building and building, and the radio recordings have become a feature of the weekly Celtic Sojourn radio broadcasts.  A series of CDs "Live from the Backroom" is being planned.

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.  Regularly, there are "openers" artists presenting three or four pieces often in contrast to the "main" offering.  This has seen some spectacular new and often unexpected talent being presented on stage.  

Tickets are $23 in advance, 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!
