“My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Paddy a few years ago at the Heritage Center and it was incredible. We’ll be there.” J.L.   This was in the Shamrock American Room at the Irish American Heritage Center in 2012. He was joined by Eugene Durkee on guitar and Laurence Nugent on flute. Photo here is from the finale, where he was also joined by (L to R) Kevin Henry, Maggie Henry Healy, Patrick Cannady and Karen Cannady.

Paddy Keenan with the Bothy Band in 1977 #PaddyKeenan #irishmusic

Here is Paddy Keenan with The Bothy Band in 1977. A supergroup featuring Paddy, along with Matt Molloy, Kevin Burke, Donal Lunny, Michael O’Domhnaill and Triona Ni Domhnaill. They invented the high-velocity fusion band sound that you still hear today at Milwaukee IrishFest and other festivals. There was nothing like them before.

Join us in May for another great Salon Concert: Paddy Keenan #irishmusic #IAHC

beard 5

Join us for another great Salon Concert featuring musician Paddy Keenan this May.

Born in Meath and raised in Dublin, Keenan comes from a musical family of settled traveling people. He grew up playing the uilleann pipes and was a founding member of the legendary Bothy Band. He has enjoyed a successful solo career touring the world and recording several important piping CDs along the way.

His recording credits include all three of the Bothy Band’s studio album, and four successful solo or duet recordings. Since the Bothy Band broke up in 1979, he has recorded with concertina ace Noel Hill, fiddling maestros Tommy Peoples and Paddy Glackin, and singer/songwriter Tommy O’Sullivan, among many others.

He has influenced at least two generations of uilleann pipers, including Davy Spillane, John McSherry, Cillian Vallely, Michael O’Connell, and a number of others. Keenan’s style contains technical brilliance, fiery expression, humor and great invention.

Patrick and Karen Cannady on uilleann pipes and fiddle will be guest musicians at the performance. Patrick and Karen are a Chicago-based couple and lifelong musicians who perform regularly in the Chicago, and at festivals across the US. Patrick is rapidly approaching 20 years of piping with many years’ prior experience on the saxophone and tin whistle. Karen has played violin since childhood and became interested in Irish fiddling in the mid-1990s. Together, they undertook to learn the Irish music they found here in Chicago, absorbing traditional melodies from musicians who hailed from Clare, Galway, Mayo, and Sligo. Their music is spare, expressive, and rhythmic, with harmonies supplied by the interplay of drones, regulators, and double stops.

Musicians from the Academy of Irish Music will open the concert.

The Paddy Keenan Salon Concert is Saturday, May 14 at 8pm in Room 109. Tickets are $20 for adults and children 18 and under are free. To purchase tickets, click below, call 773-282-7035, ext. 10 or buy at the door.
