Barre Opera House

The Opera House has earned a reputation for bringing the finest Irish groups to Vermont and this season is no exception. On February 29, Socks in the Frying Pan, a dynamic trio from County Clare bring vocal harmonies, virtuosic musical ability and onstage wit, which has captured and captivated audiences the world around. Says Irish Music Magazine says “their Sound flows in magnetic, energetic waves, so does their banter on stage.” Then it’s The Friel Sisters on April 10. Anna, Sheila and Clare are traditional musicians born in Glasgow with their family roots firmly entrenched in the Donegal Gaeltacht (Derrynamansher). As siblings, they achieve a close blend on fiddle, flute and uilleann pipes interspersed with songs sung in unison, many from their family and local repertoire. Clare garnered the prestigious TG4/Young Musician of the Year award in 2018 from the Irish language television network.
