Jenna Moynihan & Màiri Chaimbeul, with Alan Reid (Battlefield Band)
Jenna and Màiri have worked with us in many and varied iterations in Celtic Sojourn productions over the years, and believe me, they are a treat!  Blazing a trail along Celtic musics historical transatlantic pathways, this fiddle and harp duo - both Berklee College graduates and accomplished composers - combine their passion for Scottish and Gaelic tradition with US, Irish, Breton and Swedish influences. At once raw and refined, deeply rooted and sparklingly new, their interplay teems with ideas, excitement and creative chemistry. Their debut album, One Two was released in 2017 and its a beauty.

I first saw Alan Reid when I was introduced to The Battlefield Band who were opening for Robin Williamson at Sanders Theatre back in the early 1980s!  He is a master singer, songwriter, and keyboard player and continues to tour the world extensively. Sample his work below...  

And Alan Reid....

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.

Ticket prices vary and there is 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!
