Pat Egan, Tabby Finch & Sean McCartan in concert

SATURDAY OCTOBER 29, 8:00 PM
SHEPHERDS FORD HOUSE CONCERT
19 Shepherd’s Ford Lane
Bluemont VA (east side of RTE 606, River Rd.)

Please join Pat, Sean and Tabby for this special house concert–they will provide an evening of Celtic music in the great hall of fiddly Dave VanDeventer and Morgan’s beautiful riverside home near Bluemont.

Pat sings heartfelt Irish songs and ballads like no one else and accompanies Tabby’s zesty Celtic harp, piano, and accordion with brilliant guitar work. Sean plays soulful, low-down whistles.

Pat, originally from County Tipperary, has spent many years performing and teaching at major festivals and concert venues. He is known for founding, with accordion player Paddy O’Brien and Uillean piper Michael Cooney, the internationally renowned band Chulrua.

Tabby is well known in the northern Virginia /DC area for her multi-instrumental performances and recordings in various genres, with the Bogwanderers Ceili Band, Jug of Punch, the Scones, Sleat, and Mucho Gusto.

Sean is originally from Belfast, has shared the stage with his friend Paddy Keenan, and brings a full array of large and small whistles to the trio sound.

Directions: Driving west on Rte 7 from Leesburg, go over the mountain & get in the left lane as you head downhill. Just before the Shenandoah River bridge, turn Left on Rte 606, River Rd. Go a couple of miles and look on your left for balloons, the field for parking, & the Shepherds Ford sign .
Easy parking, a friendly venue, great music, good times, CDs available, and a traditional Celtic session afterwards!

Bring a dish or dessert to share, if you like! Suggested donation $10, reservations encouraged at houseconcerts@shepherdsford.com or call 540-409-7852.
