Na Rosai Irish Concert:
Friday, June 17, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
Na Rosai will be making their coastal debut, so come welcome them. The group, made up of four blokes, is based out of Portland, Oregon. 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 Jersey transplant, and bouzouki player, Richie Rosencrans and California native, and uilleann piper, 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 the East Burn. In the fall of 2012 flute player Conor O'Bryan moved to Portland from Chico, California and immediately joined the ranks of the band.
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 Breton and French tunes. To learn more about Na Rosai and hear a sampling of their music, you can visit their website.
