New England Brass
The New England Brass has been performing to enthusiastic audiences, at first in New
Hampshire, and then expanding to the North East and beyond, since 1980. The musical
talent of the members is an extension of the artistically rich Boston area environment.
These musicians make their living as top, 1st call players occupying principal positions
in many of the orchestras and ensembles in and around town. The members are also
active in the commercial work available including big bands, jazz ensembles, rock/
blues/funk bands and most often Broadway musical theatre. The New England Brass
concert programs feature this versatility and along with outstanding musicianship have
established a solid position among the finest performing brass chamber groups in the
country. In addition to adult concert programming, this group has been entertaining and
educating over 20,000 school children a year for the last 25 years. They blend comedy,
classics and familiar melodies in addition to an informative presentation to create an
exhilarating experience for the listener. The students (and teachers) always leave the
concert with an incredibly high level of enthusiasm, excitement and knowledge.

Dana Lyn and Kyle Sanna WITH Eric McDonald and Ryan McKasson
This is going to be some night of virtuosic playing. Maybe you know these players already, but if you don't, this is one of those shows where I say COME ON OUT! You wont regret it. The chops on these four individually; phenomenal. They are two separate duos, but at The Burren, anything goes, and the mind boggles at the thought of them doing a tune or two together. Dana Lyn and Kyle Sanna connect the dots between their experience as composers and improvisers in New York City's rich musical community and their deep admiration for traditional Irish music. The duo has collaborated with some of the greatest living interpreters of Irish music, including Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill, Cillian Vallely, Kevin Burke, and Susan McKeown. Take a look/listen here.... Ryan McKasson and Eric McDonald are masters of tradition who purposefully explore the dark corners floating on its edges. When they come together, the result is an alluring mix indeed full of spontaneity and improv with a sound compelling enough to transcend boundaries and appeal to music lovers of all stripes. Take a listen below... Don't miss this one. The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world. It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature. Ticket prices vary and there is a $5 discount for WGBH Members. If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code. Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!

These evenings are free and open to the public! Two (2) CE contact hours are available for each evening for $10 (or FREE for Lesley alumni) for LMHCs and NCCs. Please bring desserts or snack foods to share with others.   FEBRUARY SALON --"Opening Up to Possibilities: Creative Approaches to Treatment Planning, Teaching and Supervision” Join Irle Goldman and his guest, Daniel Simone, as they discuss their approach to therapy, to teaching of psychotherapeutic skills, and to supervision as being open to possibilities through creativity.  Using mindfulness and brainstorming, they expand the power of the corpus callosum to overcome the threat of the limbic system.  These veteran clinicians treat anxiety, depression and avoidance by looking outside the box and helping their clients create new paths to resolve “stuck-ness.”  Using the kind and accepting relationship with clients, students and supervisees, Goldman and Simone help others free themselves from their suffering by supporting a way of looking at issues, conflicts and pain in a way that helps them to see paths to solutions that were not available to them previously. Learning objectives: Participants will learn new techniques to help their clients/students/supervisees deal with their issues. Participants will learn how one can best use self-as-instrument to help others, by understanding how two experienced teachers and clinicians have helped themselves to help others. Participants will learn how to deal with the obstacles and resistances in helping others.   Sources: Watkins, C.E., Jr. (2014). The supervisory alliance as quintessential integrative variable.

He sees his work as helping people on the path through suffering towards wellness and thriving, and believes in holistic approaches in education and treatment. He has been teaching for over 40 years and is presently teaching in the Counseling and Psychology division and Expressive Therapies division at Lesley University.  He also teaches at Cambridge College in addition to seeing clients in private practice in Newton, MA. Daniel Simone is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.  His humanistic and existential approach enables him to connect well with his clients and supervisees. In his counseling work at Crooked Tree Counseling, LLC he provides psychotherapy for adolescents, adults, couples and families. He also offers consultation and supervision to new therapists. Dan works as a school adjustment counselor at Concord-Carlisle High School in Concord, MA, where he is the coordinator of program for teens transitioning back to high school following hospitalization or extended absences.  Dan is a doctoral candidate at Northeastern University, and he has been an adjunct graduate school instructor at Lesley University for 12 years.    About the Salon Series: This monthly salon series is a chance to network, share, discuss and learn about different aspects of therapy: how the relationship heals, workplace demands, the spiritual lens, self-care, developmental perspectives, creativity, etc. The goal of the evening is to facilitate a rich discussion and connection among the participant about interesting clinical issues. "Irle Goldman's Salons: Conversations About Therapy" is sponsored by the Institute for Arts and Health at Lesley University (http://www.lesley.edu/institute/arts-and-health/ ). The Institute for Arts and Health at Lesley University is recognized by the National Board for Certified Counselors to offer continuing education for National Certified Counselors (Provider #4472).

Emmy the Great
The inventive, acoustic guitar–wielding folksinger Emma-Lee Moss (stage name Emmy the Great) was born in Hong Kong and later moved with her family to England, where she became a fixture on London's burgeoning anti-folk scene. The young singer-songwriter collaborated with Lightspeed Champion, Fyfe Dangerfield, and Jeremy Warmsley, and her audience grew as she shared the stage with the likes of Martha Wainwright, Tilly and the Wall, and Kimya Dawson. Emmy the Great's debut single, "Secret Circus," was released in 2006, followed in 2007 by her EP, My Bad. Meanwhile, she was joined by Euan Hinshelwood and expanded her reach by touring the festival circuit, bringing her articulate folk songs to audiences at the Green Man Festival, Latitude Festival, and Glastonbury Festival. "We Almost Had a Baby," a single from her debut studio album, arrived in November 2008. It was followed several months later by the 2009 release of First Love. In 2011, fueled by the unfortunate last-minute breakdown of an engagement, Emmy the Great wrote and recorded her second album, Virtue, with Hinshelwood once again having a huge hand in its creation. Produced by Gareth Jones, the follow-up to First Love was a step up in quality both sonically and thematically, while Emmy the Great's blossoming relationship with Ash frontman Tim Wheeler resulted in the festive This Is Christmas album. She spent much of the next few years touring and travelling the world, which inspired her next release, the 2015 EP S. Admission: $12 in advance / $15 day of show

To Keep Us Warm: A Night of Poetry with Sarah Kay, Clint Smith, & Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib
"famine crouches in the bedsheets, ambushing the pulsing/ eiderdown, and the windchill factor hits/ thirty below, and pollution pours/ out of our chimneys to keep us warm./ February, month of despair, with a skewered heart in the centre./ I think dire thoughts, and lust for French fries/ with a splash of vinegar.../ Get rid of death. Celebrate increase. Make it be spring./" —Margaret Atwood, "February" Come escape February for a little while with an evening of poetry from three celebrated poets: Sarah Kay, Clint Smith, and Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib.

Eileen Ivers Connecting The Roots and Michael Londra’s Celtic Fire
Legendary fiddler Eileen Ivers new show CONNECTING THE ROOTS takes the audience on a musical journey exploring the rich roots of American music and dance. Connecting the Roots highlights music from Ivers new album Beyond the Bog Road, and tells of the passage of the Irish immigrant…the story of their impact on America and Americas impact on them.

Nuala Kennedy with Eamon O'Leary
Who reading this, remembers the magic of a summer's night in 2015 when the power went out in Davis Square and these two stood on stage for four magic candlelit songs without microphone or speakers! The soul of the music is in Nuala and Eamon and they are coming back!!! Love it! Video below is from that same night. (Thanks Stephen Shephard for posting) Nuala Kennedy is an Irish singer and flute player whose music features liltingly beautiful vocals, adventurous instrumentation, and an imaginative mix of influences. Although she is rooted in the Celtic music of her native Ireland and adopted homeland of Scotland, Nuala has gained critical attention for her eclectic cross-genre work. Eamon O'Leary is originally from Dublin and now a fixture on the trad Irish scene in New York where he lives. A multi-instrumentalist and find singer and harmonizer, he has performed a few times now in the Backroom Series with Jefferson Hamer as part of The Murphy Beds, and as part of the trio called The Alt that featured John Doyle as well as Nuala. The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world. It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts. Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature. Tickets are $23 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members. If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code. Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!

Mistero Buffo
Mistero Buffo, by Italian Nobel Laureate Dario Fo, revives the Medieval Mystery Play, with side-splitting modern interpretations of stories from the Gospels. But these "mysteries" turn theses familiar tales upside down. A series of virtuoso solo turns, the pieces "flip the script" on conventional morality and sanctimony, revealing the all too common hypocrisy of organized religion, revealing where true Christian values lie in the hearts of ordinary people. It's sometimes shocking, provocative, and relentlessly hilarious. The cast comprises some of the most celebrated actors in the Boston area: Remo Airaldi, Benjamin Evett, and Debra Wise. It's directed by prize-winning director Bob Scanlan, who also created this original American translation, which captures the joy, fun, and wicked humor of the original. The production is part of a Festival celebrating the 90th birthday of Dario Fo. Don't miss this comic tour de force.
