Traditional Irish Music Concert with Paul Brock Band
Sunday, October 28, 2018 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Photo of the Paul Brock Band members

Paul Brock Band features four of Ireland’s leading musicians:

  • Paul Brock on accordion from Ennis, County Clare 
  • Tipperary-born Denis Carey on piano 
  • Clare-born and now St. Louis-based Eimear Arkins on fiddle, song, and dance 
  • Manchester’s Shane Farrell on banjo, fiddle, bodhrán, guitar, mandolin, and song 

A beacon of passion and precision, integrity and diversity, Paul Brock Band is steeped in the Irish musical tradition and yet manages to seamlessly and effortlessly blend and fold in elements from American old time and bluegrass, French-Canadian, and other Celtic traditions to create something accessible, recognizable, beautiful, and unique. This ability is exemplified in the band’s most recent album, “Green Grass Blue Grass,” featuring 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs. American music critic Bill Margeson has hailed the collaboration as a “masterpiece”.

Cost $15 for adults; $10 seniors (65+); UST faculty, staff and students free
