One of the world’s most breathtaking interpreters of traditional Irish words and music — a man who’s turned epic 18th century poems into opera, co-created a concept album tribute to an Irish hero of the First World War, and caught the attention of the international folk music community.

Seán Tyrrell returns Stateside on the heels of his starkly beautiful new album Walker of the Snow, a set that sees the singer-guitarist lend his quiet power to material that ranges from Dublin poet Charles Dawson Shanley’s haunting titular folktale, to the vintage pop perennial “You Are My Sunshine.” The intimate setting of the historic Woods Theatre makes an ideal forum for the mesmerizing storytelling skills of this ageless master.
