They are coming back after a sold-out show with us at the Backroom last year.  This band just rocked our St. Patrick's Day Celtic Sojourn series of concerts back in 2014. What a punch they packed with dramatic piano accompaniment to fiddle, banjo, and great vocals.  Originally formed as a promo band for the burgeoning Celtic Colors Festival in Cape Breton, the audience reception was so gushing as to have them decide to stay together.

Just look at the accolades that have come their way.WINNER of the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Traditional Album of the Year. WINNER of the 2015 East Coast Music Award for Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year.WINNER of the 2014 Music Nova Scotia Award for Traditional/Roots Recording of the Year

Now back with a new CD, they are looking at this as their Burren Backroom debut, and we are proud to host them.  Check out their sound 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 and we will send you the code.

Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
