Aaron Barksdale-Burns, local Irish tenor will be presenting a concert of both classical and traditional favorites, Sunday March 9 at 2:00 pm at the ballroom of Californos in Westport.

The program features Samuel Barber's famous "Hermit Songs". These songs by the American composer are "settings of anonymous Irish texts of the eighth to thirteenth centuries written by monks and scholars, often on the margins of manuscripts they were copying or illuminating - perhaps not always meant to be seen by their Father Superiors". - (quoted from the musical score).

More music includes "With a Shillelagh Under Me Arm", "McMigilligan's Ball", "Miss O'Leary's Irish Fruit Cake", "Macushla" and much more! The event will end with a rousing sing-up where you can raise your voice to your favorites from the traditional repertoire.

Supporting local musicians include Lamar Sims (piano), Gage Herrington (pipes), Rich Hill (accordeon), and Marilyn Wood (piano) among others.

Californos Ballroom 4124 Pennsylvania KC, MO 64111 Sunday March 9, 2014 2:00 pm; $5 entry
