Spring Concert: Romancing the Chorus
What a treat! I joined this wonderful choir and they are having a Spring Concert in South Weymouth. They have put together a beautiful program of romantic songs and choral music from the Romantic Period. A great group of people ranging from ages 19 to 89! Amazing. I am honored to be apart and humbled by the talent and love these people have for the music. Come see us and enjoy a great night’s entertainment. Tickets range from $15 to $20.
Safe and Sound Show
After the events of the last week’s bombings, all the masses and fundraisers this week, I would like to invite all my friends down to a show. Let’s be grateful we have each other and hang out and have a beers together, enjoy ourselves and appreciate that we have friends like us, Boston Strong Friends.
Natalie Flanagan has invited me to be a special guest at two of her shows during her residency at THE TAVERN at the end of the WORLD. I am so excited to play here and we haven’t done a show together in years. She is an amazingly talented singer/songwriter and Natalie will be performing the final set with her band. The show gets going around 9.3opm. Come down early and have some fun and hang out….should be a good night of fun, folly, food and precious friends. I love you, Boston and my wonderful friends…xkt:)
Steafan Hanvey originally from Belfast is currently on his US Tour. He will be stopping off in Boston to play Club Passim and Katie McD will be opening the show.
He is also doing a multimedia presentation at Boston College on April 8th entitled ‘Look Behind You!’ This is a performance-lecture that details how a father and son have negotiated the personal and political landscapes of Northern Ireland. A melding of image and voice, anecdote and memory, it showcases the prize-winning photojournalism of Steafán’s father Bobbie along with radio-edits of his interviews with some of Northern Ireland’s best-known figures. Together, Bobbie and Steafán document the ordinary and at the same time the extraordinary – mums and dads, police and priests, the loved and the loveless, soldiers and paramilitaries, plain-folk and gentry, politicians and voters, poets, singers, painters, travellers gathered around a fire on a cold winter’s morning, the living and the dead.
