The South Eaton Meetinghouse is proud to present: “Songs of Emigration: Storytelling Through Traditional Irish Music”, performed by award winning fiddler and guitarist, Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki, on Sunday, June 30, 2018 at 7 PM.
Jordan at the age of 12 was the youngest member of the delegation representing the state of NH at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. He has toured nationally with bands in various genres, has performed across Ireland, and has released multiple recordings of Celtic music. In 2013 he was awarded the title of “Master Artist” by the NH State Council on the Arts, and was also named “Best Fiddler 2016” by NH Magazine.
During his performance Jordan will discuss the historical context of these songs and stories which have made their way into New England’s musical repertoire, and which convey some of the adventures, misadventures and emotions experienced by Irish emigrants.
While refreshments are being served after the performance, musicians of all ability levels are welcome to join Jordan in playing Irish music for half an hour. This impromptu session promises to be fun for all!
