About The Event
Celtic Music - Songs and Instrumentals with Dick Hensold and Patsy O’Brien
Dick Hensold is the leading exponent of Northumbrian smallpiping in North America, and Patsy O’Brien is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from County Cork in Ireland. Together they play a concert of Celtic music which is both traditional and innovative, focused and eclectic. The program is half songs and half instrumentals, including a variety of songs from Britain and Ireland, accompanied by guitar and Northumbrian smallpipes (a quiet bagpipe from Northeast England), or various whistles. It also features traditional and historical tunes from Cape Breton Island, Scotland, Ireland, and Northumberland. As well as a broad range of styles of Celtic music, this program also features an impressive range of expression, from the jaunty and humorous to soulful, led by Patsy’s warm and multi-colored baritone voice, Dick’s variety of pipes and whistles, and the nimble instrumental virtuosity of both musicians.
Suggested donation is $20 payable at the door.
(Please note that NONE of the various bagpipes used in this concert are very loud.)
