Oisin Mac Diarmada and Seamus Begley at KCT
Lovely concert on Friday night at the Katherine Cornell Theater in Vineyard Haven featuring Oisin Mac Diarmada and Seamus Begley. I saw Oisin in a solo performance on the same stage last year (reportedly, last night was his seventh time on the island), in which he charmed us all with stories and history, and oh yes, his amazing fiddle playing, and it was fun to see another, lighthearted side of Oisin last night. Of course it helped that Seamus is a very funny man, a brilliant joke-teller with a fondness for limericks (with a gorgeous singing voice as well).
Great music, and a great evening altogether.
X marks the spot.
