Salon Concerts Chicago presents Irish and French Canadian duo, Sophie Lavoie and Fiachra O’Regan this spring at the IAHC.
Described as “Invigorating” by The Irish Times, Sophie Lavoie and Fiachra O’Regan take the traditional music of Quebec and Ireland and mate it in a unique way, remaining true to their roots while creating a new and original sound. Their sound is rooted in the fiddle playing and singing of Quebecoise Lavoie and the uilleann piping and banjo playing of Connemara native O’Regan, and sweetened all the more by Gaelic and French Canadian song arrangements.
This is Irish music with a Quebecois Twist at its very best. This is no surprise given Lavoie and O’Regan’s track record with delighted audiences throughout the world, and their deep love for, and intimacy with, their respective musical traditions.
The Sophie Lavoie and Fiachra O’Regan Salon Concert on Thursday, May 24 at 7:30pm in Room 109. Tickets $20 for IAHC Members, $23 for non-members and 18 and under free. To purchase tickets, click below or call 773-282-7035, ext. 10.
