THE BLACK BROTHERS BAND
An evening of Irish Music and Songs in Downtown San Jose
The Black Brothers Band returns to San Jose, led by Shay & Michael of Ireland's first family of song, the Black Family. Proudly presented by The San Jose-Dublin Sister Cities Program & The Celtic Society Of The Monterey Bay, here is your opportunity to celebrate halfway to St. Patrick's Day in your hometown!
Spend an enchanted evening with the charismatic charmers from Dublin, Shay & Michael Black, the singing siblings from Ireland's foremost family of song, The Black Family, which also includes their sisters Mary & Frances & brother Martin. Hailed in the Irish Echo as 'one of the most impressive groups of Irish singers to be found anywhere; exquisite, exhilarating and nothing short of thrilling' raising sibling rivalry to revelry, The Blacks adroitly accompany their sheer joy of singing with banjo, cittern & guitar. The Black and Black Minstrel Show also features fiery fiddle virtuoso Bobbi Nikles, celestial cellist Myra Joy & captivating keyboardist Bryan Seet.
The concert includes Irish traditional ballads, Dublin street songs, music hall ditties, contemporary folk compositions, rollicking reels & joyful jigs, all interspersed with comic stories, jokes & humorous childhood anecdotes that invariably have audiences smiling broadly & joining in on the choruses.
Admission is $20 advance or $22 at the door.
100% of proceeds from the first 20 tickets sold through Eventbrite will directly benefit the San Jose-Dublin Sister City Program.
