Kathleen Collins and Gabe Donohue

November 20, 8:00 pm, Glucksman Ireland House at New York University

New Yorker Kathleen Collins was the first American-born fiddler to win a senior All-Ireland Championship, and her 1970s debut LP on the Shanachie label is still regarded as one of the great solo fiddle recordings of modern times. Over the past couple of decades, Kathleen has been better known as a teacher of Irish set and ceili dancing, but she returned to the studio to release a long-awaited second fiddle recording, My Book of Songs. As on that recording, Kathleen will be joined at this concert by guitarist, singer and keyboard player Gabe Donohue.
