Gerry O’Beirne—December 11, 2016

Gerry O’Beirne will be back Sunday, December 11 at 7:30pm. Gerry is a singer, songwriter, and guitar player from Ireland. I would, however, categorize him as an singer/songwriter who lives in Ireland rather than an Irish or Celtic performer. His songs are regularly recorded by other singers, and you can check out links of him singing here (vocals start about a minute and twenty seconds into the track) and of his instrumental guitar work here and of the group RUNA singing one of his songs here.

Born in Ennis, County Clare, along Ireland’s music-rich west coast, Gerry O’Beirne is a renowned singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist (6 and 12 string guitar, tiple, and ukulele, slide guitar among others).  He grew up in Ireland and in Ghana in West Africa, and has since lived in England, California, and Mexico. His own compositions blend the passion found in traditional music with the freshness of contemporary song.

Gerry will perform Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 7:30pm.

Many of his songs have been embraced by the contemporary folk community.  Maura O’Connell recorded Half Moon BayWestern HighwayShades of Gloria, and The Isle of Malachy.  Mary Black recorded The Holy Ground as a title track.  Cathie Ryan recorded Shades of Gloria and The Lights of San Francisco. Muireann Nic Amhloaibh has recorded Western Highway and The Isle Of Malachy on her album daybreak: fainne an lae.

The concert will be Sunday, December 11, 2014 at 7:30pm and the suggested donation is $20 per person.  For more information or to make a reservation, please see our about page.
