Besides the contrasting and complimentary sounds and styles of the harps, their performance includes concertina, whistle and bouzouki. This is the first appearance at the Burren Backroom Series for these foremost harpers of Ireland and Scotland.



Also sharing this bill, Elias Alexander and Bywater who are on the forefront of creativity in contemporary Celtic-influenced music. Rising from the thriving Boston music community, their unique version of Scottish traditional music, infused with their own compositions, improvisation, and tones of American roots music, is something truly special.



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.
