Harry & Friends: Featuring Aengus Finnan

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us for a curated songwriters in the round from Swallow Hill founder, Harry Tuft. This month’s guest is Swallow Hill CEO Aengus Finnan.

Harry & Friends returns to the Quinlan Cafe as a Songwriters In The Round event every 3rd Thursday of the month.

The evening’s timeline will begin at 7:00 – 8:15, with a performance; 8:15 – 8:30, break; 8:30 – 10:00 song circle. The audience is encouraged to participate in the song circle with, or without an instrument!

*Please be aware there is no Swallow Hill Music Member Pricing on this event. All sales final. No Refunds.*

Harry says, “I have chosen my guests based on two ideas: Some guests are well known as performers. In that case I try to bring out another side of the artist, perhaps encouraging songs not so familiar with his/her audience. In the case that I invite a guest who is not well known, I hope to expose the artist to a group who have not been aware of his/her talent as a writer and/or singer. Such is the case for my guest in March, known to some of you as the new CEO of Swallow Hill and the former CEO of the International Folk Alliance.”

Before his various administrative roles over the past 20 years, Aengus spent a decade touring as a singer-songwriter, once joining Los Texmaniacs on stage at Swallow Hill.

A winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival’s NEW FOLK Award (joining Lyle Lovett and Anais Mitchell), he released three acclaimed albums of original, traditional, and cover songs: Fool’s Gold (1999), North Wind (2002), and Once Upon A Time – Live (2004) and was described as “disarmingly artful” (Toronto Star), “Critic’s Pick” (Nashville Scene), and “a supremely talented composer” (SingOut! Magazine). His influences include Gordon Lightfoot, Stan Rogers, and Harry Chapin. Career highlights include performances at Thumbs Up – Yokohama Japan, The Yukon International Storytelling Festival, and The Kennedy Center.

** His share of the proceeds from this show will go towards the new drinking fountain in the lobby **
