Following a hugely successful SoldOut event last year, return with us once again to Sportsmens Tavern to kick off the St. Patrick’s Day season with CROSS THE POND; A Celebration of Irish and Appalachian Folk Music performed by Rochester’s legendary Dady Brothers… Buffalo’s Irish folk veterans, Crikwater… and the roots-American folk of WNY’s own the Brothers Blue.
Join us as we explore the common roots of these two traditions in a celebration of the culture and spirit of folk music…an ideal way to usher in the St. Paddy’s season!
-Dady Brothers have been winning the hearts of crowds world wide for 45 years, tastefully melding American Folk Roots and Irish Traditional influences into an amalgam of sound that is uniquely their own.
-Crikwater, Buffalo’s Irish scene veterans offer up a mix of fiery fiddle tunes, rowdy pub sing-a-longs, elegant ballads & original songs, and their music conjures scenes of gritty smoke filled Irish pubs, whiskey, pints of stout, and good craic.
-The Brothers Blue have been spreading the gospel of folk throughout New York State since 2015. With a style rooted in the fertile tradition of Old-Time fiddle music they plot course down the ever-changing road of American folk music.
CROSS THE POND is conceptualized, organized, and promoted by Crikwater, The Brothers Blue, and The Dady Brothers, in conjunction with Sportsmen’s Tavern for the preservation, understanding and advancement of the deep and spiritual connection between the folk music of Ireland and America…for the entertainment and enlightenment of all.
