Don Stiffe. (7:30PM, Sunday)
(Note: This is a 7:30 show on Sunday)
Don Stiffe is one of the great singer/songwriters to emerge on the Irish Folk Scene over the past two decades. Stiffe hails from Galway and his singing prowess is up there with the greats that Ireland has produced.  

Recently, as part of John Spillane's excellent exploration of the great ballads of Ireland, Don was asked about the song Skibbereen.  He then gave a really special version of it.  

With Cherish the Ladies, Kathleen Boyle on piano (and excellent harmonization), check it out 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 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!
