Irish Singer Sean Tyrrell is Performing at the Burren Pub on April 2

Sean Tyrrell, one of Ireland's most renowned traditional singers, is performing at the Burren Pub in Davis Square, Somerville, on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets to the show are $23 and can be purchased online.

The show is part of the Burren Backroom Series,  which features world-class musicians from the Irish, Scottish, American and Canadian traditions.  The series is hosted by Brian O'Donovan  of WGBH's Celtic Sojourn radio program.

Originally from Galway, Sean has toured the world as a solo performer and with some of Ireland's greatest musicians.  He has produced numerous albums, and issued a double-CD called Message of Peace, on the life of John Boyle O'Reilly, considered to be one of Boston's most influential Irish immigrants in the 19th century.

The Burren Pub is owned and operated by Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello, two fine traditional musicians in their own right.
