Brendan O'Shea at Irish Arts Center, December 2
(Published: October 31, 2016)

Revered singer-songwriter Brendan O'Shea returns to Irish Arts Center, December 2. At this performance, Brendan will showcase selections from his newest album, Mid-Atlantic Ghost, featuring a collection of songs written in and inspired by his home place connections, both here in the US and abroad. This event will serve as the official album launch. Originally from Killarney in the South-West of Ireland, Brendan O'Shea moved to the US in the late 90s and has become a staple within the East Village indie-folk scene.

Tickets for the performance start at $20 and are available by visiting www.IrishArtsCenter.org or by calling 866-811-4111. Irish Ars Center is located at 553 West 51st Street.

Brendan O'Shea has released three albums which have garnered praise from critics and press around the world. His work has appeared on ABC, MTV, within the wildly successful Karen Gehres documentary Begging Naked and Ron Howard's Academy Award nominated film Backdraft. Additionally, he's shared the stage with the likes of The Frames, The Swell Season, Glen Hansard, Loudon Wainwright, Interpol as well as other innovative contemporaries. "Great songs... some reminiscent of a Paul Simon feel and some of an Elliott Smith conviction" (Sounds Magazine). In 2007, Brendan O'Shea became a founding member of Fairplay Collective, a unique endeavor in which songwriters came together to support and promote each other's individual projects as independent artists. In 2008, he became a co-host of The Scratcher Sessions at NYC's Sin-e, a Sunday night concert series which features musicians from around the world.

About Irish Arts Center

Founded in 1972, Irish Arts Center is a New York-based arts and cultural center dedicated to projecting a dynamic image of Ireland and Irish America for the 21st century, building community with artists and audiences of all backgrounds, forging and strengthening cross-cultural partnerships, and preserving the evolving stories and traditions of Irish culture for generations to come. Our multi-disciplinary programming is centered around three core areas:Performance - including live music, dance, theatre, film, literature, and the humanities; Exhibition - including visual arts presentations and cultural exhibitions that tell the evolving Irish story; and Education - with dozens of classes per week in Irish language, history, music, and dance.

Located in New York City, a global capital of arts and culture, Irish Arts Center serves as a dynamic platform for top emerging and established artists. Irish Arts Center is currently developing plans to construct a new facility to serve our multi-disciplinary program and will be the strongest possible gateway for artists to reach into our cultural community and nourish their work, to connect with our partner institutions who help them innovate, and to become visible in the New York City media market which enhances their ability to achieve U.S and further international success.

The New Irish Arts Center will contain a purpose-built, state-of-the-art contemporary performance space for music, dance and theatre seating up to 160; industry-standard back of house and support facilities to allow artists to achieve their vision; a second, intimate performance space - the renovated historic Irish Arts Center theatre - optimized for live music, literature, film, talks, large classes and special events; classrooms and studio space for community education programs in Irish music, dance, language, history, and the humanities, and for master classes and workshops by visiting and resident artists; technology capability to project the Irish Arts Center experience on the digital platform; an avenue-facing café lobby to engage with the neighborhood and provide a social setting for conversation and interaction between artists and audiences; a beautiful new courtyard entrance on 51st Street where the historic Irish Arts Center building and the new facility meet.
