9:20pm: Irish Balladeer Paul Carroll grew up in Dublin during the ballad boom of the sixties where the pubs were packed with folk singers and ballad groups. It is there that he found a love for the music and songs that were to be part of his life. He credits his mother for giving him the gift of song. She was a fine singer in her own right and he remembers fondly the “hooleys” in the house. Paul emigrated to Australia in the early 70’s but he never strayed very far from the music, singing in the folk clubs of Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. During his time in Melbourne he was a founding member of the Celtic band, Poteen, who were Australia’s premiere Celtic band, sharing the stage with icons like Eric Bogle, The Dubliners, The Furey’s and Boys of the Lough. Paul made his home in New Hampshire, USA, for nearly 29 years. His latest CD, called “The Road You Take”, will be available this evening. Paul has recently relocated to Phoenix, and we look forward to many more appearances in the future!
Admission tonight is $8. Doors open at 7:15 pm.
