‘Dublinesque’ by Irish singer songwriter/ pianist Eamonn Flynn Is a fascinating mix of music, songs, and stories of Dublin. You will enjoy a portrait of Dublin through the years in an engaging performance rich in humour and soul.
Along with old standards and original new songs, this performance features lively instrumental tunes on fiddle, accordion, banjo and piano and takes a memorable glimpse into the past and present of Ireland’s capital. You will meet a cast of her characters through the years – from street poets to ladies of the night, rebels to street traders, the nobility to the denizens of Dublin’s infamous tenements. Through it all the indomitable spirit, pride, and wit of Dublin not only perseveres but triumphs.
The performance at San Francisco’s United Irish Cultural Center on February 26th will feature fiddle player Darcy Noonan , banjoist Hector Bragado and accordionist Felim Egan along with members of the United Irish Cultural Center’s Children’s Choir . It is also a CD release show for Eamonn Flynn’s new album ‘Anywhere But Home’ which features John Doyle, Michael McGoldrick, Mick McAuley and Athena Tergis among other Irish traditional music heavyweights. The show begins at 7pm.
