“Together they blend their voices with harmony and support their collection of songs with such varied instruments as the mandocello, octave mandolin and the ‘genuine Irish’ bodhrans they bought from the Cuban guy in a Texas hotel room,” the Concert Association wrote in a news release.

Admission is $20 at the door.
