A Night in Dublin
Saturday, March 13, 2021 7:30 PM
Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra
Paul Suchan, conductor
Eileen Laverty, singer-songwriter
Kim deLaforest, fiddler
We’re off to Dublin just in time to celebrate Irish culture. We’re joined by two incredible Saskatoon women who will bring us a touch of the isle. Eileen Laverty has earned recognition as one of Saskatchewan’s most significant singer-songwriters, and an SSO favourite in her previous performances – she brings a touch of Ireland as well as her own songs to this program.
Kim deLaforest is a multi-talented violinist (who often plays in the SSO!) who splits her time between performing and teaching fiddle all over Canada. She brings her joyous sound to this wonderful pre-St Patrick’s Day concert.
Composer Paul Suchan leads the SSO through this night of traditional Irish music including favourites Molly Malone, the Cliffs of Moher, and Danny Boy!
