WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (WVDN)- The White Sulphur Springs Library has announced that traditional Irish and Celtic musician Patrick O’Flaherty will perform at the library on Thursday, March 23, beginning at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will follow the program.
Raised in Galway’s Gaeltacht, on the rugged west coast of Ireland, O’Flaherty is part of a select group whose native language is Gaelic. His professional music career has spanned over three decades, and his performance venues include the Mall in Washington, D.C., Norte Dame University and the Milwaukee Irish Festival, to name a few. During this time, he performed with two excellent bands, The Celtic Folk and The Poor Clares, whose second album, “Change of Habit,” reached the national charts.
O’Flaherty considered a first-rate practitioner of the Irish mandolin and harmonica. He is also a highly respected player of the button accordion and banjo. He has been able to share his lovely music with notable people such as Pope John Paul II, President Ronald Reagan and now, you.
The library is located at 344 Main Street W. in White Sulphur Springs. Call 304-536-1171 for more information.
