Join Irish button accordion master Paddy O'Brien and his apprentices from the Center for Irish Music and O'Rourke's Feast for a celebration of Irish traditional music. The apprentices have been working hard for the past year on learning some rare and wonderful tunes from the Paddy O'Brien Tune Collection, an unprecedented documentary recording project to set down and pass along some of the 3,000 tunes that Paddy keeps stored in his phenomenal memory. There is no other collection of Irish traditional music like this in the world!
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
