Karen Ashbrook, Paul Oorts and Connie McKenna kick off the series of Celtic Concerts @ Brogue!

The 23rd Season of Winter Concerts of Trad Celtic Music @ Old Brogue launches this Sunday, 2/6, with a FABULOUS concert!  Virtuoso veterans Karen Ashbrook on hammered dulcimer, flute and whistles, and Paul Oorts, exponent of the guitarharp, bouzouki and accordion, welcome guest singer/guitarist Connie McKenna to the premier concert of the series.  If you’re looking for an evening of Euro-Celtic music to transport you to the pubs and cafés of Ireland and/or Paris, this is the concert for you.  I’m EXTREMELY particular about the quality of the music I listen to, and this is tops!  Come on out to tap your feet and sing along with the best…
