Katie & David play Irish music Thurs., May 6, at 5 PM

Katie & David play traditional Irish music on the Best Video Film & Cultural Center deck Thurs., May 6, starting at 5 PM.

Born in London, England, to Irish parents, Katie Murray moved to Co. Mayo, Ireland, at age 10 and quickly immersed herself in the South Sligo music scene, which has highly influenced her style of fiddle playing. Following a number of years in Manchester, England, Katie moved to New Haven, Connecticut in 2015 where she works as Research Scientist. Katie can be regularly found playing in Irish music sessions throughout New England.

David Sasso is a multi-instrumentalist and composer who can be heard playing with folk/acoustic duo Kat Wallace and David Sasso and bluegrass group Five ‘n Change. A psychiatrist by day, he enjoys playing mandolin-family instruments in a variety of folk genres. He met Katie through the Irish traditional music scene in CT.

We ask respect for social distancing, please, and masks are mandatory. (Yes, you can lower them to take a drink but please raise them up again.)

No cover charge but please bring cash for the musicians’ tip jar. This has been a real hard time for musicians, almost all of whom have seen their live performance income dry up.

Parking available behind Best Video and on Thornton Street.
