Featuring Portland-based traditional Irish band Na Rosai

Following the Samhain Celtic New Year festivities there will be an evening concert featuring Portland-based traditional Irish band Na Rósaí from 7 to 9 p.m. at the VFW Hall, 630 Hood St. NE, just a block from the Grant School campus.

In 2010, Erik Killops returned to his hometown of Portland, Oregon after receiving his bachelors degree in Irish Music & Dance at the University of Limerick in Ireland. Shortly after he met recent New Hampshire transplant Richie Rosencrans and California native Preston Howard at sessions around Portland. All three were eager to start a project and discovered common interests in regards to traditional music. After a few house gatherings, a weekly performance began at local watering hole. In the fall of 2012 flute player Conor O’Bryan moved to Portland from Chico, California and immediately joined the ranks of the group.

In the Fall of 2014 Na Rósaí released their debut album featuring an eclectic mix of traditional Irish music, old time Appalachian tunes, and a set of French tunes. Visit the band website at: www.narosai.com

Concert admission is $15. There is a $5 discount on the concert with a Festival wristband.
