MAC - McKasson / Alexander / Cotter
Three years into contemporary folk trio MACs (McKasson / Alexander / Cotter) exploration of what it is to be one small branch of a centuries-old tradition while also being inescapably guided by influences from many other musical languages, the rambunctious trio has released Perfectly Manufactured Reality, a gutsy Celtic-Americana album that depicts this creative journey from its infancy up to the present moment. Featuring former National Scottish Fiddle Champion Ryan McKasson (The Synchopaths, The McKassons) on fiddle/voice, Elias Alexander (Soulsha, The Bywater Band) on bagpipes/percussion/harmonium/vocals, and Colin Cotter (A Thousand Years at Sea, Midnight Choir) on guitar/harmonium/voice, MACs live performance is a wild ride tempered with artistry, finesse, and virtuosity.

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 celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code.

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