Dady Brothers share Celtic sounds at FLCC

The Dady Brothers will bring their Irish charm and music to Finger Lakes Community College for a concert performance and to conduct a workshop on Thursday, March 3. Both events are free and open to the public.

The 7 p.m. concert, which will include special guests and Irish refreshments, will be held in Stage 13 on the second floor of the Canandaigua campus, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive.  Parking is available in the main lot. Handicapped accessible parking is available directly in front of the building by the main entrance.

During the hour-long Celtic music workshop, which begins at 5 p.m., John and Joe Dady will demonstrate their unique instruments and discuss their musical influences and styles.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own instruments and join in the jam session. The workshop will also be held in Stage 13.

The widely acclaimed folk duo has performed their special brand of Irish music throughout the U.S., Canada and Ireland. The Dady Brothers use a variety of instruments, including fiddle, mandolin, guitar, penny whistle, bodhran, harmonica, banjo and uillean pipes.

The concert and workshop are sponsored by the FLCC social sciences department and the Student Corporation. For additional information, contact Joshua Heller, chair of the social science department, at (585) 785-1335 or hellerjw@flcc.edu.
