The 2nd Saturday Community Concerts present, Dick Hensold and Patsy O'Brien! 

A concert of traditional Celtic music, but with unique and innovative arrangements, including a variety of songs from Britain and Ireland, accompanied by guitar and Northumbrian Smallpipes (a quiet bagpipe from Northeast England), or various whistles. It also features traditional and historical tunes from Cape Breton Island, Scotland, Ireland, and Northumberland, with a good measure of original music in the traditional style. As well as a broad range of styles of Celtic music, this program also features an impressive range of expression, from the jaunty and humorous to soulful, led by Patsy’s warm and multi-colored baritone voice, Dick’s variety of pipes and whistles, and the nimble instrumental virtuosity of both musicians. Please note that NONE of these instruments are very loud.

What I love about Dick and Patsy’s duo is that their music deeply satisfies both the die-hard lover of traditional music and those with little experience in this kind of music. Virtuosity, wit, and great stage chemistry will do that. — Kevin Carr 

Dick Hensold, Northumbrian Smallpipes, Scottish reel pipes, whistles, and recorder. The leading Northumbrian Smallpiper in North America, for the past 25 years Dick Hensold has performed and taught in England, Scotland, Japan, Canada, and across the United States.

A master piper with an exquisite touch. — City Pages

Ireland’s best-kept musical secret. — Paul Dromey
