St. Mary’s-by-the-Sea is proud to present Paddy Keenan in concert with guitarist Richard Mandel on October 6.

Come enjoy a lively afternoon of traditional Irish tunes with the legendary piper of Bothy Band fame!

Tickets are available on line at brownpapertickets.com, or at the door, adults $15.00, kids 12 and under, $8.  For more information, call Jackie at 831-224-3819, or e-mail fiddlejamjp@gmail.com.

Food and libations will be available, with proceeds benefitting St. Mary’s community food pantry.

Celebrating his first album release in over a dozen years, Paddy Keenan makes a long awaited visit to the Monterey Peninsula. As Irish music critic John O’Regan observed, “In Irish music there are legends and then there’s Paddy Keenan.” Bursting on the Irish traditional music scene as the turbo engine propelling The Bothy Band, Keenan is widely regarded as the most accomplished & exciting uilleann piper today. His wild & unfettered ‘open’ style, has led his fellow Bothy Band member, Donal Lunny, to call Paddy ‘the Jimi Hendrix of the pipes.’ A recipient of the prestigious ‘Musician of the Year’ award from TG4, the Irish language TV station, Paddy is equally adept on the low whistle & can let it rip on a rollicking reel, while in the next breath, he is sublimely soulful in a haunting slow air. Performing with acclaimed Bay Area guitarist Richard Mandel, hearing this traditional master in a friendly, intimate setting will be a treat not to be missed.

Our Little Roses

St. Mary’s Celebrates Our Little Roses on Pentecost

Our Little Roses

What an energetic Pentecost! We did it…raised $5,000 to allow for a new sports area and to reinforce a wall for the girls of Our Little Roses in Honduras. Muchas gracias Kirsten for your leadership and passion and  to St. Mary’s Youth Group for your hard work and organization.  The red bricked wall, created by the Youth Group, represents $5,000 in gifts. A Baleada lunch, traditional in Honduras, musical entertainment and my favorite popsicles, capped a delightful day. OLR, we hope to be with you in 2014!
