Luke Concannon and Stephanie Hollenberg will perform an evening of Irish music as part of the After Dinner musical series at the Denmark Arts Center at 7 p.m. on Friday July 16 in Bicentennial Park in Denmark.

Concannon remembers falling asleep at Irish family celebrations early on to the sound of guitars, songs and dancing. After meeting double bass player John Parker at school, the two formed the folk duo Nizlopi (best known for the “JCB Song”), selling a million records in their twenties and deeply influencing a young Ed Sheeran. By dint of recording and touring around the world with a small family label, Nizlopi broke up. Reinvigorated by a hitchhiking trip to Palestine, Concannon wrote his first solo album, “Give It All”, kindling the fire for a career as a solo singer-songwriter. An EP, “In the Sea”, followed, with singles including “Join the Liberation”.

He followed his sweetheart, singer Stephanie Hollenberg, to the United States and they married in 2019. Her struggle to find a place to belong has allowed her to deeply understand that it is the interplay of light and the darkness that makes us whole. They now reside on the land of the Abenaki people of Vermont, with wonderful neighbors and about fifteen chickens.

The performances of the Denmark Arts Center (DAC) will take place in the Bicentennial Park opposite the Arts Center. After Dinner Music Series will be a salary you can this summer (suggested donation of $ 10). Registration is required. DAC will follow CDC guidelines for events.
