Description

When the York Symphony Orchestra needed the best uilleann pipe player in America for their Celtic Celebration Concert, they called Jerry O'Sullivan. Here's why:




"We found that Jerry O'Sullivan is the go-to guy for Irish bagpipes," conductor Lawrence Golan said. "There's a film called 'Far and Away' that starred Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, with music by the king of film composers, John Williams. When they needed a piper for that film, they called Jerry O'Sullivan."




On October 28 at 2:00pm, fans of Irish traditional music will have a chance to hear Jerry O'Sullivan play and meet him in person in a cozy intimate setting in Utica at Turning Point Church (438 Columbia Street).

Jerry O'Sullivan, America's premier uilleann piper, has been featured on more than 90 albums and has performed or recorded with artists such as The Boston Pops, Don Henley, Paul Winter, James Galway, Dolly Parton, and Eileen Ivers. With four of his own solo albums and a number of film soundtracks, including From Shore to Shore, The Long Journey Home, Far and Away, Africans in America, and Out of Ireland, he is a highly accomplished player you won't want to miss. Besides the uilleann pipes, Jerry also plays tin whistle, low whistle, Highland Pipes, and Scottish smallpipes.

Joining Jerry for this concert is Damien Connolly, an All-Ireland first place winning accordion player. His father and first music teacher is Martin Connolly, the renowned manufacturer of the Kincora Accordion. Damien, who is also a composer and fiddle player, has recorded two CDs.

Because of the small venue, seats are limited. So you'll want to buy your tickets soon before this rare opportunity is sold out. Tickets are $15 in advance through Eventbrite and $20 at the door if there's space left.
