Beth Patterson & Patrick O'Flaherty's House Concert in Houston
When: Frid, March 30, 2012
Beth Patterson & Patrick O'Flaherty first joined forces in 1993 to form the nationally-charting band 'The Poor Clares'. O'Flaherty (formerly of 'The Celtic Folk') brings to the table jigs, tells, hornpipes, waltzes, and other dance tunes on the mandolin, accordion, banjo, and bouzouki, as well as songs in English and his native Connemara Irish Gaelic, while Patterson backs him up in her distinctive style of bouzouki playing, singing original songs, Celtic songs, and music of her native Louisiana. The two produce a high-energy sound, full of banter and light-hearted craic.
