|Hi Folks! |
Just a quick note to let you know of two upcoming performances this month in Chicagoland...
I will be doing a solo performance entitled "An accordion on my knee - Irish Traditional Music from Chicago" at 2PM on Sunday, May 17th at the Orland Park Public Library (14921 S Ravinia Ave) where I will be playing a few tunes and chatting a bit with Bucky Halker as part of his "From Generation to Generation: Folk Arts of Illinois" series currently on display at the library. It is a free show and would be a great place to bring the family for a bit of music and a lot of books. And you could show the younger ones what the internet was before the internet... ;-))
There is more information here
And on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, bohola (myself and Pat Broaders) will be doing two performances at the 29th Annual Chicago Gaelic Park Irish Festival. It is always a great festival and has everything from trad to dance to celtic rock and all in between including a Children's petting zoo, Pony rides, and unlimited carnival rides to boot. Come out and enjoy the fun!!
And now for a bit of music to help kickstart the upcoming shows. Here is a video taken by a fan at a performance I did a couple of months back in San Francisco at the legendary Plough and Stars as the opening night concert of the Irish-American Crossroads Festival. Enjoy!!
All the best,
