Sunday, Dec. 11 is the next Sean-nós Irish Dance Workshop at Boston Percussive Dance in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This time, everyone is welcome to bring a guest for free! Sean-nós dance is a spontaneous expression. It's social, playful and very interactive. As one musician said recently, "It's great when you can hear the feet talking back to you!"

So bring your roommate, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, or sibling who has envied your steps, or always wanted to try it out. We'll do solo steps, short duets, and a figure or two from a set. Live music by Sean Gannon! For details or to register online, visit
Monday, Dec 12, I'll be performing at Club Passim in Cambridge with Laurel Martin and Matt Heaton. This show is part of BCMFest Music Monday, a wonderful series that takes place every month to highlight our exceptional community of musicians and dancers, and to give you a preview of Boston Celtic Music Fest in January. I love dancing with these two fine musicians... they have so much sensitivity and taste! C
Craving some new music for the holidays? Consider my new CD with Triptych (with Laura Risk and Paddy League). We are a trio of fiddle, guitar, and feet, and you'll hear my steps and percussive dance on almost every track on this album. You can listen samples and purchase the CD by visiting
