Irish music will return to the hallways of Kenai Peninsula College when KDLL 91.9 FM hosts “An Evening of Traditional Irish Music” as part of the Kenai Peninsula Showcase on Friday, Jan. 26, starting at 6:30 p.m.
The annual Irish music performance has been staged on the peninsula by a trio of performers — including John Walsh, Pat Broaders and a rotating third seat — for many years. This will be the event’s third year hosted by KDLL, who sponsored the return of the event in 2022, after the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the show in 2021.
The performance this year is sponsored by KDLL and the KPC Showcase, funded with a grant by the Damon Foundation.
Per previous Clarion reporting, Walsh plays tenor banjo and Broaders plays bouzouki and sings.
Admission is free, but there are only 150 seats for the performance in the Kenai River Campus’ Ward Building — seats can be reserved at kdll.org.
The performance will double as the annual meeting for the station. A newsletter for the event promises “snacks and information on public radio.”
More information, including interviews with the performers, can be found at kdll.org by searching for “Irish concert.” The station can also be found on Facebook at “KDLL 91.9 FM.”
