Irish Music with The Jolly Beggars
Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day by enjoying some Irish Music with The Jolly Beggars on Saturday, March 19th from 1-3pm in the Kingsley Room of the Southbury Public Library. The Jolly Beggars are a five-piece acoustic Celtic music band playing bass, guitar, mandolin, penny whistle and bodhran (a type of Irish frame drum). Their traditional songs and musical arrangements incorporate Irish folklore into the lyrics, and their reels and jigs are sure to get your toe tapping. Based in Connecticut, the band features school teachers/musicians Jeff DesRosier (Vocals/Mandolin/Guitar), Christopher Vece (Vocals/Whistles), Greg Wilfrid (Vocals/Guitar/Banjo/Mandolin) David Uhl (Vocals/Double Bass), and Matt Torcellini (Vocals/Percussion).
