We have more information on Those Manning Bhoys and Friends

We are getting more information for the Saturday August 24th Concert by those Manning Bhoys. Here is some of this information, it's going to be a great concert!  Do NOT miss this!

Zac Leger is one of the most sought after performers and teachers of Irish music in the United States today. One of the most impressive multi instrumentalists in recent years, Zac is a champion uilleann piper, whistle player, and flautist, but is equally at home as an accompanist and singer, where his driving guitar rhythms and ringing bouzouki counterpoint are welcome additions to any professional Celtic ensemble. At the age of 30, Zac boasts an impressive resume, having toured, recorded and performed with luminaries such as Liz Carroll, John Whelan, Eileen Ivers, John Doyle, and Jamie Laval. Zac recently served as musical director for the popular stage act "Ireland: The Show" in both New York City and Los Angeles, where he currently resides.

Liam Lewis has been immersed in traditional music of various backgrounds (Celtic, Bluegrass, Old Time) since starting the fiddle at age 5, playing and singing in LA all throughout High School.  Now he is currently studying swing, gypsy jazz and Brazilian music at the Berklee College of Music in Boston under the tutelage of Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, and Jason Anick.  Look out for his Internet Radio show "Clusterfolk!" where young local musicians in Boston are featured playing a wide variety of traditional music.

Antonovich, Rotary Club of Altadena, Monte Cedro, Athens Service, Toyota of Pasadena, El Patron Mexican Food Restaurant, All American Audio Visual, our own home town news source,, The Printworks and, Georgia Rutherford in memory of Don Rutherford.
