“St. Patrick’s Day lends itself to a good old fashioned variety show,” O'Donovan says. “Our concert will reach from the very traditional, old-style music often described as 'pure drop' to the more contemporary end, what’s being played today. We will also journey out on its branches and look at its close relationship with America, Appalachia, Scotland, and many other places all while enjoying each other’s company in the beautiful confines of Sanders Theatre."

Local, regional, and national broadcasts of Brian O’Donovan’s radio program A Celtic Sojourn over the past 25 years have proven extraordinarily popular. This concert follows the format established for the burgeoning A Christmas Celtic Sojourn series of concerts which, during this past December, played to over 11,000 people in Boston, Worcester, and Rockport, MA; Providence, RI; and Derry, NH.
