Sean Tyrrell
Sean Tyrrell is no stranger to the Burren Backroom or indeed, this series. In the past, he has wooed the audience with tales and songs about Irish American Heroes, Ghostly Hunters, crazy bombers, lonely lovers, and broken hearted travellers. Last year in this series, he celebrated his recording of some of the "big" Irish songs that, to paraphrase Yogi Berra, were so popular, nobody sang them any more. One patron a few years agao, described him as "the Robert Johnson of Ireland." Can't wait to have him back with us. Click on the Video to the left to listen to a unique and brilliant reinterpretation of The Rising of the Moon. The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the great trad series in the world, and looks to create intimate, informal presentations held in the atmospheric space created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Masachusetts. Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings will feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature. There is a $5 discount for WGBH Members. If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code. Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!

Alba's Edge... CD Release....
I have gotten to hear Alba's Edge a number of times now in concert and must admit to being very impressed indeed by the innovative, unbridled, and adventurous approach to new and traditional tunes alike. But its the phenomenal level musical chops and sheer energy they bring to their performances that has most impressed. This will be a CD release so expect lots and lots of great and enthusiastic guests some of which you will already know of!! "Alba's Edge is a tapestry of cultures: the expressive melodies of Scottish fiddle music are woven together with jazz improvisation and harmony, funk bass lines and the rhythms of Latin America to form a cohesive and singular musical experience. Fiddle, piano, drums and bass come together seamlessly in a new sound that BBC Radio Scotland has called "a wonderful concoction." The Burren Backroom series launched in October of 2011 but has already created many memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. DeDanann, Dervish, Teada, The Teetotalers, Lunasa, Robbie O'Connell, Sean Tyrrell, the list is building and building, and the radio recordings have become a feature of the weekly Celtic Sojourn radio broadcasts. A series of CDs "Live from the Backroom" is being planned. Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. Regularly, there are "openers" artists presenting three or four pieces often in contrast to the "main" offering. This has seen some spectacular new and often unexpected talent being presented on stage. There is a $5 discount for WGBH Members. If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code. Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!

The Máirtín O'Connor Trio
Hup! This is something to look forward to indeed. AND one of those events that doesn't come around too often. Máirtín O'Connor is recognized as one of the foremost proponents of the accordion or "the box" as it is affectionately and more widely known these days. Add in fiddler, Cathal Hayden, and singer/guitarist Shamie O'Dowd, and you have what can only be described as a super-trio of traditional music. Little more for me to say, cept WOW! This will be gone in a flash. Simple as that. The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the great trad series in the world, and looks to create intimate, informal presentations held in the atmospheric space created by well-known traditional musicians Tommy and Louise McCarthy in Davis Square, Somerville, Masachusetts.

Inaugural International Peace and Security Lecture

Event will be the first installment of an annual lecture series focused on current events affecting global peace and security. Veterans' Day is Nov. 11 and commemorates of the end of World War I and the signing of the Treaty of Versailles - an infamous failed attempt at establishing a framework for lasting peace in the international community. This event, which will be held as close to Veterans' Day as possible each year, will mark the tragedy of that conflict and conflicts that continue around the world today, and explore the legal issues around current threats to global security. This year, the topic will be ISIS. A panel of three speakers, some from outside BU, will be invited to discuss the international legal norms that govern the use of force in Iraq and Syria, the role that humanitarian law plays in the situation, and the constitutionality of the U.S. involvement.

Mount Auburn Book Club: Gideon's Trumpet

Mount Auburn resident Anthony Lewis first published his legal history Gideon's Trumpet 50 years ago (1964), chronicling the landmark case that produced the 6th Amendment, which guaranteed criminal defendants the right to counsel.

Each month, the Mount Auburn Book Club meets to discuss a selected work related to one of Mount Auburn's many facets. Selections range from books on history, natural history, horticulture, art, architecture, preservation, and wildlife to books written by or about those now buried and commemorated here. The Book Club meets in Story Chapel on the second Thursday of each month. Coffee and tea are provided.

Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
