CelticMKE Events
September 23, 2017 ~ Alison Perkins and Nicolas Brown in Concert

CelticMKE Center, Wauwatosa, WI

Join us for a special evening of Irish traditional music on uilleann pipes and fiddle at the historic Ward Irish Music Archives, located on the second floor of the CelticMKE Center. The Archives provides an intimate, acoustic listening room; hear Irish music deeply influenced by early recordings found in our archival collections. 

Alison and Nicolas have been playing Irish traditional music (uilleann pipes, flute and fiddle) together for close to a decade, but it's only recently that they have finally begun bringing their close musical partnership to the stage. Together, they research forgotten settings of obscure tunes and bring them to listeners with a style that is at once unapologetically old fashioned, fresh, vibrant and spirited.


$15 in advance until 9/16
$20 from 9/16 to 9/23 and at the door 


6:00 pm doors // 7:00 pm
