Kimball Library News 2/22/16

IRISH MUSIC WITH PAUL CARROLL: Join us for an evening of Irish music with Paul Carroll on Monday, March 14th, from 6:30-8:00pm.  Tap your toe along with us!

Paul grew up in Dublin during the ballad boom of the sixties where the pubs were packed with folk singers and ballad groups. It is there that he found a love for the music and songs that were to be part of his life.  He credits his mother for giving him the gift of song. She was a fine singer in her own right and he remembers fondly the ‘hooleys” in the house.

Paul immigrated to Australia in the early 70’s but he never strayed very far from the music, singing in the folk clubs of Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. During his time in Melbourne he was a founding member of the Celtic band, Poteen, who were Australia’s premiere Celtic band, sharing the stage with icons like Eric Bogle, The Dubliners, The Furey’s and Boys of the Lough.

Paul has made his home in New Hampshire, USA, for nearly 25 years. His latest CD, called ‘The Road You Take”, will be available for sale that evening.

This musical event is sponsored by the Friends of the Kimball Library. Light refreshments will be served.
