Sean Tyrrell bids us farewell. Sean is no stranger to the Burren Backroom wooing us with tales and songs about Irish American Heroes, Ghostly Hunters, crazy bombers, lonely lovers, and broken hearted travellers. One patron a few years agao, described him as "the Robert Johnson of Ireland." Can't wait to have him back with us.
Sean has decided to pack in the often grueling grind of US touring and has quite frankly, like many, been worn down a little by the increasing difficulties in getting the right visas to perform here. But he has decided to give us a parting gift by coming back to perform in this hallowed space, one last time.
Don't miss this legend as we bid him adieu.
The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the great trad series in the world, and looks to create intimate, informal presentations held in the atmospheric space created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Masachusetts.
Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings will 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.
There is 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.
Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
