Acclaimed Canadian-Irish trio 3TíR – Pierre Schryer, Dermot Byrne and Adam Dobres – plays Wednesday 2nd August, 2017 benefit concert for fire victims
One of the great things about the Canadian music community is its willingness to help out when one of its members is in need. Our old friend, Valley fiddler Dan Schryer, recently lost his family’s house in Deep River to a fire, and his musician brother Pierre suggested that we at Old Sod should co-produce a benefit concert featuring Pierre’s internationally acclaimed Celtic trio 3TíR (pronounced “three-tier”). Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts has donated the venue, and our co-producers Ottawa Irish Arts and Brigid’s Well are pitching in to make this event a success. Proceeds from the concert will go to help Dan and Laura rebuild their house and get life back to normal. We hope you will turn out to support what promises to be a great concert for a good cause.
Where: Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts, 310 Saint Patrick Street, Ottawa, (access from Cumberland St)
When: Wednesday 2nd August, 2017 @ 7:30pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm
Admission: $20, $15 youth/children.

3TíR is a phenomenal international trio of Celtic musicians from Canada and Ireland. The group features Franco Ontarian fiddler Pierre Schryer, Irish button accordionist Dermot Byrne, and European influenced guitarist Adam Dobresfrom British Columbia. A tour de force of versatility, fine musicianship and technical dexterity, this trio brings together three diverse and successful music careers laden with awards and nominations including JUNO, Canadian Folk Music, TG4 Irish Traditional Musician of the Year, and the Grammy Awards. Connected by traditional music of various styles, the group name reflects their unity with “TíR” meaning “land or country” in Irish Gaelic. Indeed these superstar musicians represent their individual land and heritage proudly, and together they have a magic that is undeniably inspiring. The connection started in 1999 with the recording of Pierre and Dermot, entitled “2 Worlds United.” This CD was released on the New Canadian Records label and in Ireland for worldwide distribution by Claddagh Records, and was the catalyst for the two musical comrades to perform together at festivals in Germany, Ireland, and North America. Several tours later and adding Adam to the mix, the trio is now appearing on festival stages from the Pacific to the Atlantic and beyond.
Hope to see you Aug 2nd!
