The Kerry Brothers will perform as part of The Joseph N. Goff House Gazebo Music Series on Thursday, July 25, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. The concert will be held at the Gazebo on Center School grounds, and in case of rain, will take place inside The Congregational Church of East Hampton.
The Kerry Boys are Mark James, originally from the county Kerry, Ireland, and now a Cheshire resident, and Pierce Campbell, Connecticut’s official state troubadour 2007/08, from Prospect. These two dynamic and popular Connecticut Irish balladeers combined their talents to form an exciting Irish music duo more than 23 years ago, and have entertained fans of all ages from Maine to Pennsylvania with their humorous, high-energy performances and engaging style of Irish ballads and sea songs ever since.
Both are strong vocalists and instrumentalists with James playing guitar and Campbell playing mandolin, guitar and banjo and writing great pub songs. This enables them to sing pristine harmonies rarely heard anymore, while backing them up with powerful and expressive instrumentation, as well as having original material that fits so well with their traditional songs.
The July concert is free, but donations to the Joseph N. Goff House Museum and Cultural Center are welcome. These concerts are made possible by the generous donations of area businesses, organizations and citizens.
