@ Riley’s Pour House

PIC_0634Be sure to check the Appearances tab for my next performance date at Riley’s Pour House.

Most shows run from 8:00 pm to midnight, starting with ballads and building to a raucous finale of Irish folk-rock.

It’s a great way to consider our cultural roots, share some stories, and enjoy the company of the best people you’re likely to find this side of Dingle. See you there!

Performing with his band, Connolly delivers a mix of trance, rock, and ambient compositions designed to complement the book that was both a Black Quill and Hoffer Award finalist.
