Patsy O'Brien - Oct. 7th

Doors open at 6:30pm

 

Society Hall welcomes Patsy O'Brien to our stage on October 7th at 7:30pm.

Hailing from Cork in the south of Ireland,  award-winning songwriter and much sought-after guitarist  Patsy O’Brien is renowned for his ability to meld songwriting and guitar styles seamlessly. It’s a trait that caught the attention of NPR who featured his arrangement of The Star Of The County Down (see below) on their All Songs Considered program.

“Wow wow WOW…. Patsy played last night at the Coaldale Schoolhouse and it was literally one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. What an engaging performer he is on top of his wonderful songwriting and knock-your-socks-off guitar playing….experiences like these are rare–this may sound like hype but this is the real deal.”

Featured on National Public Radio and winning a Best Song Award from a chapter of the American Folk Alliance in 2003, press critics have commented that Patsy  “Falls in the void between Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson. An Irish Robbie Robertson” (New Haven Advocate)
