The Teetotalers by Jordan KoepkeThe Susquehanna Folk Music Society is excited to announce that a recording of THE TEETOTALLERS concert, featuring that absolutely stunning Irish group that played for Susquehanna Folk this past April, will be aired tomorrow (November 9th) at 8 PM on 89.5 and 93.3 WITF radio.

The group will be featured on WITF’s program CENTER STAGE; an original production that brings  local live full-length regional concerts from across the musical spectrum—from classical and jazz to folk and rock–to listeners in Central PA and beyond.

The Teetotallers are an all-star trio of traditional Irish musicians.  Each has had a separate acclaimed career. Guitarist John Doyle is from Dublin. He was acoustic guitarist for four years with the Irish-American band Solas. He’s written many traditional-style songs and has appeared on a long list of recordings. Fiddler Martin Hayes is from County Clare, Ireland. He’s been All-Ireland Fiddle Champion six times and he plays regularly with the famous Tulla Ceili band of which his father was a founding member. Flute & whistle player Kevin Crawford is from Birmingham England, but his parents were immigrants from County Clare in Ireland. He’s played with a number of different groups including the Irish Band Lunasa.

The Susquehanna Folk Music Society brought them to the Fort Hunter Centennial Barn in Harrisburg in April of 2013 for an evening of Irish music-making, old and new.

The broadcast will also include an interview with SFMS Executive Director Jess Hayden.
