Charlie Lennon and Eilis Lennon
Recognised as one of Ireland's leading composers of traditional music, and a standout fiddler and piano accompanist in his own right, Charlie Lennon, will make his Burren Backroom debut in the fine fiddling company of his daughter Eilis.  

Charlie has written several books, suites and most recently a highly anticipated orchestral work commemorating the Easter Rising of 1916. A few years ago, he visited Boston with brother Ben, and Maurice Lennon, to listen to his Island Suite being played by the Orchestra of Indian Hill.

He is also visiting Boston this time on a new project, which we will announce and talk about at this concert.  

But I dare say, its Charlies brilliant approach to traditional Irish music that will be on display at the Backroom on this unique night.  See below for a sampling; a great set of tunes along with Mairtin O'Connor and Liz Carroll.  

A terrific fiddler and all round musician in her own right, Éilís Lennon is Director of Cuan Studios in Galway and has worked on many projects in the Creative Arts in the last 15 years.

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.

Ticket prices vary and there is 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!
