Paddy O'Brien will be our special guest this Saturday 3 pm on "Folk Music & Beyond." Paddy will demonstrate his mastery of the accordion and talk about his remarkable musical memory for traditional tunes. He has collected more than 4,000 compositions—jigs, reels, hornpipes, airs, and marches, including many rare and unusual tunes. Paddy will open the Crossroads Irish-American Festival in San Francisco this weekend.
The great Irish fiddler Martin Hayes and guitarist Dennis Cahill return to Folk Music & Beyond for a live performance this Saturday February 25th at 3 pm. Hayes ranks among the most innovative and distinguished fiddlers playing traditional music today.
