The Rowsome Family of Dublin

4 Corners Schoolhouse, East Montpelier

$20 suggested, $10 for children 15 and under.

The Vermont School of Irish Traditional Music is delighted to present one of Ireland’s great musical families, carriers of a musical tradition which goes back many generations.  Kevin Rowsome, grandson of renowned piper and pipemaker, Leo Rowsome, his wife Lorraine Hickey, of the well-known Preston family, and their multi-instrumentalist daughters, Tierna and Naoise, will be spending a week with us in Vermont.  With pipes, fiddle, harp, concertina, accordion, and vocals, this is a unique opportunity to hear the entire family together and they are not to be missed.  We’ll send a reminder, but here’s a video of the girls performing during the Easter Rising commemoration in Dublin last year.
