Michael Tubridy 

Irish flute player Michael Tubridy is performing with fiddle master Seamus Connolly at an Irish Dance and Ceili taking place at Boston College on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The event, which is free and open to the public, takes place at Gasson Hall on the Chestnut Hill campus.

Noted Irish dancer Kieran Jordan is leading the ceili and dancing activities for the evening. 

Born in County Clare, Michael Tubridy is best known as an original member of The Chieftains, formed in 1962, and plays wooden flute, tin whistle and concertina.  He left the band in 1979 and continues to play great traditional music and teaches at Irish festivals around the world.

Seamus Connolly is the Sullivan Artist in Residence at Boston College, and founder of the school's Gaelic Roots program.  He is a ten-time All Ireland fiddle champion and one of the most influential Irish musicians of his generation.

Joining Tubridy and Connolly on stage are two other great local musicians, Helen Kisiel on piano and Brendan Tonra on fiddle and flute.

Here is a schedule of upcoming concerts hosted by Gaelic Roots at Boston College.
