Captain Francis O’Neill – The Man and the Music — 1 Comment

  1. Yesterday, Saturday February 28, 2016, we were privileged to attend the Second Annual Chief Francis O'Neill Irish Music Festival in Tiburon, California (which is located in Marin County, just north of San Francisco).  It was also entitled The Man Who Saved Irish Music.  The performances highlighted Irish music, poetry, oratory, humor and dance.  There were three generations of fiddle players, a musical skit, the playing of ancient Irish instruments (Harp, Bodhran and Uilleann Pipes), glorious storytelling, traditional dancing and a performance by an Irish band, TEADA.

    The evening was magical.  The audience was enraptured.  A simply beautiful experience.
