Pints on the Patio – Into the Sun
July 9, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Our July 9 Pints on the Patio – Into the Sun
Welcome you back to the Irish Center as we launch our summer live music series, Pints on the Patio. In this time of social distancing we thought we’d take advantage of our beautiful outdoor courtyard to offer intimate concerts throughout the summer featuring local Irish musicians. This week is Into the Sun with Mike Dugger, David Agee and Gordon Bearss.
Mike Dugger – Accordion (aka box) – Mike has been around the Irish music scene not only in KC but nationally from the critically acclaimed Scartaglen to Glenroad and Kelly. Mike plays the button accordion religiously, learning several new tunes each week. You talk with anyone from Lunasa to Cherish the ladies and when you say KC Irish music, they will say “how’s Dugger?”
David Agee – Fiddle and Mandolin – Dave is the go to for Irish style fiddle and mandolin. He has played in many local bands and was a founding member (along with Dugger) in the band Scartaglen. David also does a great Canadian style foot stomping as he plays and sings.
Gordon Bearss – Guitar and Bouzouki. Gordon is that player who hears a song or a tune and can make it better than what you originally heard. He’s been in the KC scene for many years playing in various bands throughout the region honing his skills more specifically to Irish and folk music.
In case of inclement weather, we will move the event inside Drexel Hall.
Limited tickets will be sold – NO WALK-UPS WILL BE ALLOWED. Social distancing will be practiced. Tickets are $20 and include entrance + 2 drinks. Our bar will be open for additional drink purchases.
