We welcome Jarlath Henderson to the Spire Center, 25 ½ Court St. in downtown Plymouth, MA on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. Tripping Lily opens the show. BBC Young Folk Musician award winner Jarlath Henderson is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and doctor. His debut solo album, ‘Hearts Broken, Heads Turned’, is an assemblage of traditional folk songs from across the UK and Ireland, collected by Jarlath throughout his musical life, and presented as they’ve never been heard before.
Equally gifted on both pipes and whistles, he won huge critical plaudits for Partners in Crime, his 2008 duo release alongside Scottish co-instrumentalist Ross Ainslie, with whom he’s gigged extensively in both a trio and a six-piece, at international festivals including Celtic Connections, Cambridge, Tønder, Shetland, Lorient and Jodhpur in Rajasthan. Between times, he’s also appeared in such variously stellar company as The Transatlantic Sessions, Jack Bruce, Lau, Capercaillie, Paddy Keenan, Salsa Celtica, Phil Cunningham, Buille, Michael McGoldrick and the Earth Affair line-up, which performed for Nelson Mandela in 2005.
Tickets are $25; advance purchase is recommended, seating is limited to capacity. The Spire is handicap accessible, public parking is available StreetSide, and in public lots near the venue.
