Blarney Star Concert Series: Gearóid Ó hAllmhuráin and Willie Kelly
September 15, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Gearóid Ó hAllmhuráin, a professor of Irish Studies at Concordia University in Montréal, is also a renowned master of the “Anglo” concertina. The push and pull of the concertina’s bellows provided the rhythmic pulse for set dancers in the kitchens of County Clare, a sound that Professor Ó hAllmhuráin will reproduce in the cozy confines of Glucksman Ireland House. He will be joined by New Jersey fiddler Willie Kelly, a master of the old-time musical style of the East Galway/East Clare region.
Free admission to Members of Glucksman Ireland House and to all students/faculty with a valid NYU I.D. card. For non-members: $15 donation at the door for the Blarney Star Concert Series.
Tickets at the door only; the Blarney Star Concert Series does not accept reservations.
All events are supported by members of Glucksman Ireland House
