TIMES House Concerts

The Way Traditional Music Was Meant to be Heard

Irish music played traditionally is more than just a folk genre. It’s a very skillful and artful music that is best appreciated up close and personal. Most people have listened to live Irish music in places that it’s most commonly played – pubs and festivals – where real listening is a challenge. For our pleasure and yours, we want to hear traditional Irish music in the most intimate of settings possible – in our homes – where every note, every instrument and every melody or song is savored personally. In fact, one might say that house concerts are the highest form of musical experience short of playing the music ourselves. These concerts offer a front seat view into the musical lives of the artists and provide an ideal opportunity to show respect for their exceptional talents. We hope you will join us as we present these concerts as a tribute to the musicians and their music and with the gratitude that both deserve.

About The Here and Now

The Here and Now is Texas' newest and most exciting contemporary Irish music group. They are a four piece ensemble based primarily out of Austin, TX. The band's members include Niamh Fahy on fiddle and vocals, Chris Buckley on fiddle, Rob Forkner on bodhran, and Joseph Carmichael on guitar and vocals.

Individually they are all highly experienced, accomplished and award winning musicians. Each member is well versed in a range of styles, but they have a shared passion for Traditional Irish music. The Here and Now's passion for Irish music and playing together is evident in the tightness and energy of their sound, which comes through in droves during their live performances.

Coming off of highly successful tours over the last two summers headlining summer concert and artists series, playing to packed house concert audiences, and along with the highly anticipated release of their second album, The Here and Now have quickly become a force in the genres of World and Traditional Irish music. As one reviewer stated, "There are great things to come from this talented group of musicians."
