Irish accordion virtuoso Jimmy Keane’s accomplishments are boundless. He has achieved astonishing and unprecedented success in competitive playing, having won five consecutive All-Ireland titles on the piano accordion. He has always been an avid collector and arranger of old tunes and is becoming increasingly known for his original compositions. Composer and musician Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin has praised Keane as the “savior of the piano accordion.” Liz Carroll is an Irish fiddler, composer, and recording artist and the first Irish-American musician to be nominated for a Grammy. She has featured on thirteen albums and has appeared on many more, with a new record due for release in Autumn. We look forward to them making beautiful music together.
This concert is in association with Milwaukee Irish Fest.
