Irish KC : A Blog

Kansas City's Irish Festivals, Music, Pubs & Events

Monday, March 27, 2006


Tomorrow evening Tuesday, March 28, 2006, Bohola play Herod Hall Auditorium.

It's on the campus of Northwestern Oklahoma State University - which I grant you is bit beyond your casual evening's drive from Kansas City, but I've been looking at maps.

Bohola are based in Chicago. And just like on their recent trip to the North Texas Irish Fest, Kansas City is being skipped over. This is a plea for them to play KC.

For the last couple of years their spoken CD A Childhood Christmas has been an essential part of my family Christmas here in KC, but their more regular stuff, like on Bohola 4 is a wonderful powerhouse of virtuoso accordion playing along with the fiddle and the bouzar (bass bouzouki & guitar hybrid).

Accordion player Jimmy Keane has performed and recorded with some of the best Irish musicians around including Liz Carroll, Michael Flatley, Mick Moloney, Eileen Ivers and Seamus Egan. That's pedigree. Before Bohola 5 is released, go ahead and listen to some tracks on their website. Or go to Oklahoma.
