John Doyle on November 19

The Jenkins House Concert series is pleased to welcome John Doyle to the Upper West Side while he is on tour of the Northeast. John is one of the most influential and important musicians in Irish music today. He was a founding member of Irish American super-group Solas in the 1990s and recently served as band leader for the Joan Baez band. As a guitarist, he is unparalleled for his harmonic and rhythmic genius. His instrumental prowess contributed to his 2010 GRAMMY nomination for Best Traditional World Music album for his collaboration with fiddler Liz Carroll on Double Play. In recent years Doyle has emerged as an important singer of Irish music as well; his 2010 collaboration, Exiles Return, with Karan Casey won him critical acclaim and solidified his reputation as a world class interpreter of traditional songs.

Please join us on November 19th at 8:00. You can reserve a seat for this performance by emailing for all the details.
