The invention of the late, great fiddler Dale Hopkins from Missouri, Fiddle Hell occurs periodically in fun locations worldwide. Prior Fiddle Hells have occurred in the US, the UK, the Netherlands, and Germany. Dale used the term "Fiddle Hell" to refer to the unique sound of many fiddlers playing a tune together. While Dale's two Fiddle Hell gatherings involved performances for the public as well as some informal sharing of tunes and techniques, Dave Reiner extended the concept to make Fiddle Hell Massachusetts more of a fiddle camp for all ages, with scheduled workshops and jam sessions led by a wonderful group of experienced and supportive instructors.
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Linden Place Museum is thrilled to welcome back internationally known folk singer and songwriter Robbie O’Connell for a night of authentic Celtic music and storytelling. O’Connell will be performing in the historic Linden Place Mansion parlors at 500 Hope Street in Bristol, Rhode Island on Friday, March 24, 2017 at 7:30pm.
Clancy & O’Connell will perform Celtic-flavored pieces, with Rose Clancy on the fiddle and Robbie O’Connell on guitar and vocals – together they create a delightful musical tapestry to celebrate the season.
Tickets for the concert are $25 for general admissions and $20 for Linden Place members, and free for Colt Circle members. The concert will include a wine reception after the performance to meet O’Connell and Clancy. This annual event tends to sell out, so reservations are recommended. Reservations can be made by contacting Linden Place at (401) 253- 0390.
Brothers Eugene & Pat Clancy first started performing with their family's Ceili Band in Ireland in the 1950s before coming to America in the '60s, where they toured as the Irish Ramblers, recording The Patriot Game for Electra and performed at Carnegie Hall. The Clancy Tradition is still a fun, talented Irish family band with Eugene & Pat Clancy, along with a daughter & son on fiddle & bass, and accordion added for good measure.
