Whether youre a longtime listener or just learning about the Irish culture podcast Irish Music Stories, host Shannon Heaton is planning a big Hooley to celebrate Season Four of the show. This special Mothers Day event will feature live performances from local Celtic all-star musicians and dancers (like Katie McNally, Neil Pearlman, Helen Kisiel and many others) and also short previews from Future episodes and an onstage recording event with live sound design. The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world. It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature. Ticket prices vary and there is a $5 discount for WGBH Members. If you are a member, send an e-mail to and we will send you the code. Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
