Next Saturday, July 20, at the Andy McGann Festival during the Catskills Irish Arts Week, there will be a tribute to the renowned piano and keyboard player Felix Dolan who died this April. Dolan was one of the seminal performers of traditional Irish music in the New York City area, going back to the 1950s, and played for more than 50 years. He was also a really good guy.
Here's the info (only on part of a day-long festival).:
Friends of Felix Dolan: 3:15-4:15 pm
“A tribute to a Legend. Felix was an integral part of the CIAW from its earliest times. Always a gentleman and an inspiration to all, his loss is felt throughout the CIAW family of fellow musicians, students and staff alike. Here in East Durham, many are eager to take to the stage in what promises to be a roller coaster hour of music, song, dance, tales, laughter and tears as we journey for a short while on the wings of a beautiful dove. We love you Felix. Thank you for your music.”
