Colm Ó Riain @ Great Star Theater
March 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm$25 – $60
Irish-born virtuoso violinist and composer Colm Ó Riain and his Ensemble celebrate St.Patrick’s Day with their soulful exploration of the connection between Ireland and a host of other musical cultures. West African percussion underpinning plaintive Middle Eastern melodies, Flamenco duende driving jazz improvisations, all topped by fiery Irish fiddling for a sparkling, modern take on this most Irish of days.
“Ó Riain’s fireworks display of virtuosity easily spans the diverse genres of gypsy, tango, jazz, blues and Irish music, all with his characteristic intelligence and pizazz” – the Irish Herald.
Musicians: Colm Ó Riain (violins), Geoff van Lienden (guitar), Joe Kyle, Jr (bass), Wade Peterson (percussion), Kate Brubeck (vocals) and special guests.
Doors open at 7pm | Full Bar & Dance Zone
