Full band show on Thursday -- FREE and all ages.
I've come out of hibernation over the past couple of weeks, and you may have even spotted me ... wait for it ... out in public. As in having a cocktail with friends at an event I didn't have to work. This is a big deal, especially after a year of scrimping, saving, teaching more than I'd like, and playing many fewer shows than I'd like.
No more, folks, no more!
Thursday evening at 7:00 sharp, you'll get a chance to hear my full band play for free. Well, they aren't playing for free -- we have a rule about that, being "professionals" and all -- but YOU don't have to pay to hear them. We'll be at the Kentucky Center for the Arts, in the lobby bar area to the right as you walk in the front door on Main Street. You don't have to have tickets for the evening's shows (either Les Miserables or Eileen Ivers), but we stop our set at 7:50, so you won't miss a note if you DO have tickets to the bigger shows. If you'd like to buy tickets to Eileen Ivers, then
Otherwise, hang out, have a cocktail or a mocktail, and listen to my brilliant band play.
Here is some info on the night, including discount tickets to the Eileen Ivers concert:

Description: How good is Irish fiddler Eileen Ivers? How about winning the all-Ireland Fiddle Championship nine times? How about being called "the future of the Celtic fiddle" by the Washington Post? Or dubbed "the Jimi Hendrix of the violin" by The New York Times? Ivers will tear up the Bomhard stage with her electric, frenetic, inspired playing that mixes traditional Celtic with jazz, World, and rock influences.
Come early, stay late! Join us for free pre-show entertainment in The Kentucky Center Bar starting around 7 p.m. with local alt-country cabaret performer Brigid Kaelin and her band. Brigid is a talented multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, piano, accordion and a mean musical saw!
Ticketing: Standard ticket prices are $25, $30, reserved seating, fees apply. Standard tickets are available online, by phone (502.584.7777, 502.562.0730 TTY), and in-person at The Kentucky Center box office.
After tonight's show, your Eileen Ivers ticket stub gets you 10% off at Patrick O'Shea's!
