Cork County native Donie Carroll began his musical career during the great Irish ballad boom of the 1960s. Within a decade, his solo career as a traditional folk singer and entertainer took off, with annual residencies at seaside resorts and small festivals on the Emerald Isle. In the early 1990s, he moved to New York City, where he became a legend at Kate Kearney’s, a now-closed Manhattan bar, eventually joining the Washington Square Harp and Shamrock Orchestra. On February 22 at the New York Irish Center in LIC, Carroll will jam with other Irish musicians, dancers and skilled storytellers in a night for lovers of Irish music and culture.
