Burren Backroom Series

Somerville, MA

The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the premiere trad series in the world, and looks to create intimate, informal presentations held in the atmospheric space created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Masachusetts.  
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.  Shows are usually recorded for broadcast.
