We chat on the Good Morning Ireland Radio Show after 2pm to await Fiachra O'Regan's call in around 2:10-2:15 and have a chat and play some tunes and songs from Sophie and Fiachra in advance of a Sophie Lavoie and Fiachra O’Regan Salon Concert on Thursday, May 24th at the Irish American Heritage Center.
More about the Salon Concert:
Salon Concerts Chicago proudly presents Irish and French Canadian duo, Sophie Lavoie and Fiachra O'Regan, 7:30 PM Thursday, May 24, 2018, in Room 109. Tickets $20 for IAHC Members, $23 for non-members. Children and teens 18 and under free.
Described as “Invigorating” by The Irish Times, Sophie & Fiachra take the Traditional Music of Quebec and Ireland and mate it in a unique way, remaining true to their roots while creating a new and original sound.
Their sound is rooted in the Fiddle playing and singing of Quebecoise Sophie Lavoie and the uilleann piping and banjo playing of Fiachra O’Regan, who hails from the Connemara. Their sound is sweetened all the more by Gaelic and French Canadian song arrangements.
This is Irish Music with a Quebecois Twist at its very best. This is no surprise given Sophie & Fiachra’s track record with delighted audiences throughout the world – and their deep love for, and intimacy with, their respective musical traditions.
Tickets available on the irish-american.org website, or call 77-282-7035 x10 or at the door.
