BC's Gaelic Roots Series Kicks off with Celtic and Franco-American Music Duo on September 25

This season's Gaelic Roots Music, Song, Dance, Workshop, and Lecture Series at Boston College kicks off with a performance by Don Roy, often referred to as the "dean of Franco-American fiddling in Maine" and his wife Cindy Roy, an accomplished pianist and step-dancer, on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 6:30 p.m.

They'll be performing at the Theology & Ministry Library Auditorium, accessible via the Brighton Campus gate at 2117 Commonwealth Avenue in Brighton. The concert is free and open to the public.

The Roys started and operate the Maine Fiddle Camp in Montville, ME, a program that provides traditional instruction to all levels of musicians each summer.

The Gaelic Roots Music, Song, Dance, Workshop, and Lecture Series is sponsored by Center for Irish Programs, in collaboration with the University Libraries and the Alumni Association of Boston College. The series is hosted by Sullivan Artist-in-Residence Séamus Connolly
