Seattle Folklore Concert: Randal Bays and John Coyne
Saturday October 27, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$9 – $20
SFS is pleased to welcome fiddler Randal Bays back to our stage, this time with singer and bouzouki player John Coyne!
Randal Bays and John Coyne bring power and passion to the traditional music of Ireland. Fiddle tunes – the reels and jigs that are the hallmark of the Irish tradition, plus a great selection of songs, a few stories, occasionally a guest musician or dancer jumping in… all of this delivered with the heartfelt wish to share the to share the wild beauty of Irish music with their audience.
Randal currently lives in Olympia, with a frequent touring and teaching schedule that makes a local concert a rare treat. He has been seriously obsessed with Irish fiddle for… let’s just say a very long time. He’s performed and recorded with a number of notable musicians including James Kelly, James Keane, Daithi Sproule, Martin Hayes and many more. As Fiddler Magazine says, “Randal Bays is one of the finest Irish fiddlers one could ever hope to hear”.
John Coyne hails from Limerick, Ireland, and has been resident in Boston for some years. His excellent bouzouki playing and fine singing have made him the “first call” accompanist for many great traditional musicians, including Mary MacNamara, Mickey Dunne and Frankie Gavin.
Join us on Oct 27 for a fine night of Irish tunes and songs!
