This concert, called A St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn, was first produced in 2004 and reflects the easy, relaxed and diverse offerings of Brian O'Donovan's weekly program. This year's version will feature a dynamic young five piece band from Ireland called Téada (pronounced Tay-a-du) who will be joined by a truly iconic singer and accordion player Séamus Begley from the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. Also on the bill, Irish American singer-songwriter, Carol Noonan accompanied by guitar gods Kevin Barry and Duke Levine. And we are delighted to introduce Uileann Piper, Tiperarry-born, Michael Cooney. (Uileann Pipes are the Irish form of the bag pipes.) As has become a tradition for the show, dancers and very special surprise musical guests will also be added.
