Dateline Irish on Echoes of Erin

with Diane Byrnes

Hello Friends,


Attached is the updated Dateline Irish for tomorrow, February 16, 2020.  The Ireland Report comes to us with Davy Kettyles, out of Dublin and is sponsored by Jack Goodrich, Goodrich & Associates LLC.  I have a guest in the studio with me, James Gourlay, Musical & Artistic Director, River City Brass Band.  James is promoting the Celtic Connections concert that will be taking place during March at a variety of schools and other venues.  This is such an excellent program with dynamic musicians.  I will be airing the CD of Celtic Connections and I am hopeful you will agree with me.  Plus James Gourlay is quite a unique talent himself, as Conductor, on tuba, and presenter.  A River City Brass Band Concert makes for a most enjoyable evening of entertainment.  Make sure to tune in Sunday, from 12:30pm on WEDO 810AM.


Some other events coming up real soon include the Row On For Brendan Concert with Lunasa next Saturday, plus two local musicians, Michael Kepler on fiddle and bodhran and Margaret Kepler on fiddle and maybe feet.  Both of these young folks have performed the last two years at this concert and are quite talented.  A few years down the road when they are performing with the best of the best, you can say I heard them when …  Karan Casey is performing at The Roots Cellar early in March for Calliope House.  Karan Casey and Cillian Vallely of Lunasa are husband and wife and they are both performing in Pittsburgh, just at different times.  Another great night of music, food, and fun is the Pittsburgh Ceili Club’s Kick Off Ceili on Saturday, March 7th.  They always have a well-planned event, try it, you will like it.  The phone number to order tickets is noted in Dateline.


Well folks, that’s all for now, enjoy the read!
