Getting our Irish on @ Riley’s Pour House

March 18th, 2018

The music started when Young John Gallagher took the stage before a packed house in Riley’s Outdoor Pavilion. An hour later, The Connolly-Davis Band followed suit before an SRO crowd inside the pub.

Connolly Brothers: July 7th @ Riley’s

July 3rd, 2017

Brother Mark is in town from Colorado, I’m back from L.A., and now will be getting together at Riley’s Pour House on Friday, July 7. We’ll start at 8:00 and won’t stop until midnight.  Longtime bandmate Duane Davis will also be on hand to back us up on bass.

Special surprise guests? Absolutely, but you’ll need to be there to find out who.

Riley’s is located at 215 East Main Street in Carnegie. If you’re anywhere near there, plan to stop in and find out why the family that plays together stays together.

Flash Fiction @ Sewickley Public Library

June 16th, 2016

flash fictionThis Friday, June 17, I’ll be taking a break from working on the new book to drop by the Sewickley Public Library, where I’ve been invited to talk about one of my favorite subjects–flash fiction.

It’s a presentation that I’ve given before at various workshops and conferences, and I’m looking forward to dusting it off and giving it again. It’s always a good time.

The talk starts at 10:30 AM. If you’re in the area, I’ll hope to see you there. Either way, you can get a preview at this vintage post from Oct. 2013. Scop on!
