Baal Tinne Salon Concert Irish American Heritage Center #irishmusic #SalonConcertChicago


Join us in the Fifth Province for our monthly salon Concert Series. The June Salon is Baal Tinne. The evening’s opening act is the Academy of Irish Music.

The band, led by Noel Rice, explores the boundaries of Irish traditional music with contemporary influences while remaining true to the traditional sound.

A six member band, Baal Tinne features Noel on flute and tin whistle, daughter Cathleen on fiddle son Kevin on bodhrán and percussion, Matt Sundstrom on guitar, Kiera Byrne on fiddle, Richard Roche on piano and keyboards and Catriona Byrne on cello.

Baal Tinne’s sound strikes a balance between absolute respect for the tradition of the music, and pushing its boundaries. The band’s commitment to rediscovering long lost or forgotten tune, contemporary influences, and a dynamic, driving rhythm results in a sound that will captivate you.

The Baal Tinne Salon Concert is Friday, June 12 at 8pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and children 18 and under are free. This is a ticketed concert and the Fifth Province will be open to patrons with tickets only.

To purchase tickets, call 773-282-7035, ext. 10. Online ticket sales available soon! Watch this space!
