This blog started out giving you posts of the songwriter’s notes, lyrics, and music for my original songs. As with many things, it has gone in new directions. So, if you just started reading my post and are interested in my original material, here is a link to "Saturday Morning," one of my original songs. You can read about the song’s history, review the lyrics, and listen to the song. If you want to add the song to your playlist, you can download it at Amazon or iTunes.
On Thursday, 11/19, John Dady will be our performer in the “Side room” at Buffalo Bill’s. John, who regularly performs with his brother Joe in the group The Dady Brothers, will be showcasing a special show of his original material. I hope this little description from the Dady Brothers’ web site entices you to come to John’s show!
“The Dady Brothers are a musical duo who have been performing and winning the hearts of crowds professionally for over 40 years. The Dady's music transcends genres and generations by the melding of American Folk Roots and Irish Traditional influences into an amalgam of sound that is uniquely their own. John and Joe are highly skilled players and singers. The instruments they have command of are: The guitar, 4 and 5 string banjo, pennywhistle, ukulele, fiddle, mandolin, bodhran, harmonica, concertina and the uilleann pipes. They have taken their talents to many diverse venues from the reaches of Alaska to Ireland from the Caribbean to Nova Scotia. They have performed well over five thousand shows at concert halls, schools, music festivals and night clubs. John and Joe have shared the stage with notables like: Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy, Terry Gibb, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Ani DiFranco, Rick Danko, Arlo Guthrie, Kate Wolf, The Clancy Brothers, Johnny Paycheck, Paddy Keenan, John Hume, Papa John Creech, Jay Unger and Molly Mason, The Makem Brothers, Pete Seeger, Paddy Reilly, Cherish The Ladies”
To give you a feel of John’s original material, here is a video of John doing, "Mind to Move." To learn more about John and Joe, you can check them out right here. Hope you can join us for this show!
The concert is free, but we do ask for donations to support our performers. Siobhan has created three CDs, one for each of our three seasons. Each CD contains songs of the performers who appeared during that season. The requested donation for each CD is $10, and the proceeds go to the performers who are playing on the night of the donation. The CDs have gotten good reviews, and we hope they get passed around to let others know about the great talent we have appearing at this venue.
The concerts take place on the first and third Thursdays of every month in the side room of Buffalo Bill’s Family Restaurant and Taproom, 19 Main Street, Shortsville, NY. The show runs from 7 to 9 PM. To learn more about Buffalo Bill’s, check out their site right here:

Hope you can join us on November 19!
