Concerts at the Crane: Golden Lane ~ Traditional Irish Music
Richardson Building, Main Library, 40 Washington Street, Quincy, MA, 02169
Join us for a Sunday afternoon concert in the beautiful historic Richardson Building featuring Golden Lane.
Golden lane is a group of musicians from the Southeastern New England area who specialize in performing the lively dance music of Ireland (jigs, reels, etc.) in a traditional style. They also perform songs in both English and Gaelic. The group’s performances are always “family-friendly” and interaction with the audience—questions about the music or the instruments, kids dancing, clapping, foot-tapping, Grandpa Eddie’s version of “Danny Boy”–is (mostly) welcome.
The Richardson Building seats a maximum of 100 and on some occasions we do have to turn people away when that capacity is reached. We recommend planning ahead and leaving time for parking, which can be tricky in Quincy Center. On Sundays, if the Library parking lot is full, there is overflow parking available in front of the Coddington Building, across the street from the Library on Coddington Street. Doors open 15 minutes before the start of the performance. If you’d prefer to watch from home, the event will also be LIVESTREAMED to our YouTube channel and recorded and aired at a later date on QATV.
Generously sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.
