Double Bill: Vishten and Padraig Rynne/Ryan McIvor
Prince Edward Island is swathed in the mixing bowl of French, English, Scottish, and Irish music, and Vishten is one of the great exponents of what its distinct music tradition has become.  Their newest CD Mozaik, is a beauty indeed and I have seen them perform live in Newfoundland where I was blown away by their musicality, versatility, and sheer energy.  Just watch the video on the left to know see exactly what I mean.

Padraig Rynne on concertina, with Ryan McIvor on vocals and guitar have already provided us with a stellar music performance when they wandered through Boston last year.  Padraig is such a terrific exponent of the Clare style on that unique instrument, and his humor kept us in stitches during that set.  Ryan is known for his singing,tasty guitar accompaniment and broad influences which include Irish, Appalachian, Blues and contemporary Americana.  

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!
