THE IRISH DESCENDANTS
Tuesday, March 12 | 7:30pm
The Irish Descendants are a four piece folk group from St. John’s NL, Canada. All members are born of Irish emigrants which explains their deep understanding of the music they perform. The group helped to popularise traditional Newfoundland music to a wider Canadian audience in the early 1990s, along with other bands such as Great Big Sea. Their popularity within the province itself led to their selection as the official band of the province's 500th anniversary celebrations, during which they performed for the Queen. The Irish Descendants have been recognized with numerous awards that includes: 4 East Coast Music Awards including Entertainer of the Year, a JUNO Award, their National TV show “Misty Morning Shore” won a Gabriel Award and two of their 14 studio recordings went Gold here in Canada. Their lineup has frequently changed, with frontman/founder Con O'Brien being the only constant member. Regular touring and occasional album releases most recently sold-out Celtic Christmas tours (13 years in a row), St. Patrick Day weekend tours in the Maritimes and periodic tours of Western Canada and Ontario have kept the group busy leaving audiences always wanting more.
