Providing every child access to the life-changing experience of making music.
On Wednesday, June 9 a few of the regulars who play the weekly Patrick’s Pub Irish Session in Greeley volunteered to perform their favorite tune sets and raise donations for Bringing Music to Life.
This evening kicked off the SUMMER nights community series hosted by Zoë’s, a locally owned non-profit coffee house & event center in the heart of downtown Greeley.
Our thanks to:
- Jeff Bain on the Irish pipes (called the Uilleann pipes)
- Blayne Chastain on flute and guitar
- Hannah Jaehn on the Irish frame drum (the bodhran)
- Stacy and Lloyd Heikes on fiddle and pennywhistle
- Betsy O’Malley on tenor banjo and fiddle
This SUMMER nights evening was part of Betsy O’Malley’s 2021 project of bringing informal live Irish traditional music to wider audiences while raising funds to support Bringing Music to Life.
Throughout the summer Betsy and friends will be busking for Bringing Music to Life:
- at the Timnath Sunday Market on June 13, July 11, August 8, and September 12.
- at the Larimer County Farmers’ Market every Saturday morning.
- at the Berthoud Farmers’ Market on Saturday, July 17, and Saturday, August 14.
Thank you, Betsy!
