Irish fiddler P.V. ODonnell entertained Greenwich crowds for eight years until his death in late January. The Greenwich Library will carry on his tradition with a tribute concert in his memory Saturday.
After his death, ODonnells wife, Marian, said he would want his annual concert to go on in his memory. With that in mind, the library concert will feature guitarist and singer Danny Ringrose, button accordion player Loretta Murphy and fiddler Jeanne Freeman playing Irish music to honor the late fiddler.
Ringrose, a Connecticut native with more than 20 years of performance experience throughout the United States and Ireland, plays tender ballads, tunes of drinking and merriment, sea shanties and silly ditties. Though his focus remains on Irish music, Ringrose also sings a variety of American folk and contemporary tunes.
The concert will take place Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. It is free and open to the public. Doors open at 1:45 p.m. For more information, call Alice Bonvenuto at 203-622-7919.
