The sixth annual St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn Concert returns to the beautiful Sanders Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Friday, March 18 at 8pm. Due popular demand, a second venue has been added at Zeiterion Theatre in New Bedford, Massachusetts on Saturday, March 19 at 8pm.  Highlighting this year’s lineup will be Téada, a dynamic young five-piece band from Ireland, who will be joined by the truly iconic singer and accordion player, Séamus Begley, from the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry. Joining the lineup will be Irish American singer-songwriter Carol Noonan, accompanied by guitar gods Kevin Barry and Duke Levine. This year, from Tiperarry, we are delighted to introduce uilleann piper, Michael Cooney. (Uilleann pipes are the Irish form of the bag pipes.) Finally, as has become a tradition for the show, dancers and some very special surprise musical guests will also be added.
