The Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, has announced its fall Hallamór Concert Series. The start time for each concert is 7:30 p.m.
The season opens with Skipper’s Alley on Friday, Oct. 20. A modern Irish folk band with an old-school approach, the six-piece ensemble has drawn praise for their gritty, high-octane Irish tunes and occasional detours into the dark, somber melodies of the Irish song tradition.
Performing on Friday, Nov. 10 are Maura O’Connell and Karan Casey, two of Irish music’s most revered singers known for the depth, beauty and joy in their exploration and interpretation of songs. They will be joined by in-demand musicians John Mock and Ed Boyd.
Internationally renowned performer, arranger and recording artist, harpist Kim Robertson will present an intimate, warm and joyful celebration of a traditional Celtic Christmas on Saturday, Dec. 16. A Wisconsinite, Robertson will be joined by musicians from the Milwaukee area as well as Irish dancers.
Tickets for the Skipper’s Alley and Kim Robertson concerts are $21 in advance and $25 on concert day. Tickets for O’Connell and Casey are $29 in advance and $33 at the door. Tickets for students are $10 and free for children 12 and under. To purchase tickets and more information, go to www.ichc.net or call (414) 345-8800.
