An Evening of Irish Songs and Stories with Tom O’Carroll

Tom O'Carroll will entertain with Irish songs and stories on March 15 at Essex Library

Enjoy an early St. Paddy’s Day at the Essex Library on Tuesday March 15 at 7p.m., when Tom O’Carroll performs an entertaining program that will whisk you to Erin.

Dublin born folklorist, folk-singer and instrumentalist Tom O’Carroll brings a wealth of stories, humor, wit and history to his performances. He has played at concerts, festivals, colleges, libraries and pubs all over the U.S. and Canada, as well as his native Ireland, including a stint for one month in Seoul, South Korea.

Whether playing a plaintive air on the tin whistle or singing and playing rousing traditional songs to the accompaniment of the guitar or the bodhrán (Irish drum), Tom will captivate all with his lively program of Irish culture.

A donation of $5 is suggested. Please call Library to register at 860-767-1560. CDs of Tom’s music will be available for purchase at the show.
