First formed around 1990, this band has become synonymous with great trad influences Scottish music and song writing. No fewer that 14 different musicians have pass through, but the current line up of Jonny Hardie (one of the founding members), Aaron Jones, Ali Hutton, and Donald Hay is one of the strongest in my opinion.
This will be a dynamite night of tunes and songs. They don't often come through, and I'm beyond excited to have them coming to the Backroom series.
Check out their music 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the code.
