The On Stage! concert series at the Chevalier Theatre in Medford, MA is pleased to welcome a triple-bill of the Boston-area’s finest Irish Music performers: Matt and Shannon Heaton, Laura Cortese and Fodhla on Saturday, March 18th at 8:00 pm.
This is a wonderful intimate experience and will be a great way to celebrate the day after St. Patrick’s Day!
I decided to attend this show by the Irish quartet We Banjo 3 at Johnny D’s (part of the World Music schedule) because the combination of Irish music and bluegrass sounded irresistible. My intuition turned out to be accurate – this was a fantastic show!
I did not have a hard time imagining how Irish old-timey bluegrass music would sound, but I had no idea it would be as fabulous as is was! The band, at its first show ever in the Boston area, played to an enthusiastic sold-out crowd and stunned us with their talent and wit. I got the impression that they were surprised to have sold out the venue!
