Since becoming the youngest ever musician to win the prestigious BBC Young Folk Award also the first from Ireland (Co. Tyrone), and the first uilleann piper Jarlath Henderson has been busy expanding his repertoire, his collaborations, and his capabilities. Equally at home with Uilleann Pipes, whistles and increasingly recognized as a vocalist, he is a force to be reckoned with as are all of the band mates he regularly assembles for tours. This should be an epic night.
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 email@example.com and we will send you the code.
