A St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn was first produced in 2004 and reflects the easy, relaxed, and diverse offerings of O’Donovan’s weekly program.
This is Brian O'Donovan's 10th annual celebration of the Roots and Branches of Irish Music, Song and Dance, based on the popular 89.7 WGBH radio program "A Celtic Sojourn". Local, regional, and national broadcasts of O’Donovan’s 89.7 WGBH radio program, "A Celtic Sojourn", have proven extraordinarily popular. This concert follows the format established for the still growing Christmas Celtic Sojourn concert series which, this past December, played to more than 12,000 people in Boston, Worcester, Rockport, and New Bedford.
The Henry Girls, an Irish folk and roots music group.
Mick McCauley, from the Broadway run of Sting’s “The Last Ship” and the accordionist for Solas, from Kilkenny, Ireland.
Còig, the music of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, a wonderful blend of Scottish, Irish, and French Canadian influences.
