  Thursday, November 6th I am hosting Gerry O'Beirne. Gerry will be here at 7:30.

Born in Ennis, County Clare, along Ireland’s music-rich west coast, Gerry O’Beirne is a renowned singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist (6 and 12 string guitar, tipple, and ukulele, slide guitar among others).  He is a wonderful player by the way. He grew up in Ireland and in Ghana in West Africa, and has since lived in England, California, and Mexico. His own compositions blend the passion found in traditional music with the freshness of contemporary song. Many of his songs have been embraced by the contemporary folk community.  Maura O’Connell recorded Half Moon Bay, Western Highway, Shades of Gloria, and The Isle of Malachy.  Mary Black recorded The Holy Ground as a title track.  Cathie Ryan recorded Shades of Gloria and The Lights of San Francisco. Muireann Nic Amhloaibh has recorded Western Highway and The Isle Of Malachy on her album daybreak: fainne an lae.Gerry has toured the globe as a solo artist and with the Sharon Shannon Band, Patrick Street, Midnight Well, Andy M. Stewart, Kevin Burke, Andy Irvine, and the Waterboys.  He has performed at the White House, opened for the Grateful Dead, and played electric guitar with Marianne Faithfull.  He composed and recorded the score to River of Dreams, an artistic response to the River Shannon commissioned by the Irish Department of Arts and Heritage, and he has written music for film and theater. Gerry has appeared on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. 

I am requesting a $15.00 donation with all proceeds going to Gerry. For information and reservations please call (530) 753-3472 or email wjwagman@dcn.org.
