For the past decade, the A St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn concerts have introduced a wide range of new and familiar musicians alike to audiences eager to celebrate the holiday in true Irish fashion. This year’s cast showcases exquisite musicianship from groups and individuals representing the core tradition as well as the wide range of connections to Irish music around the world. Since 1986, local, regional, and national broadcasts of O’Donovan’s radio program A Celtic Sojourn have proven extraordinarily popular. This concert follows the established format of the long-running A Christmas Celtic Sojourn production, which plays to over 15,000 people in Boston, Worcester, Rockport, and Providence each year.
This year’s lineup includes The Murphy Beds, Clare Horgan, Nathan Gourley and Laura Feddersen, Chris Stephens, Torrin Ryan and music director Keith Murphy, representing a powerhouse of music and singing. Dancers Kevin McCormack and Ashley Smith-Wallace bring artistic mastery to the art of step dancing, and congenial host O’Donovan keeps the show moving with his wit, vocal chops and extensive knowledge of Celtic music.
