CONCLUDED – The Dady Bros – Songs of the Canals

We had a great kick off to this years events with John Day and Perry Cleaveland. All our thoughts and prayers to Joe Dady and we wish him some Irish Luck in his time of need.

Continuing the partnership between the  Seneca Museum and the Women’s National Historical Park  our next program The Dady Bros.are being presented in the Historic Wesleyan Chapel at the Women’s Rights National Historical Park.

John and Joe Dady are The Dady Brothers, and as audiences know, the name is synonymous with fine musical talent and fun! They are a Rochester based folk duo and their shows consist of Celtic and folk-roots music.  This versatile duo plays a variety of instruments the fiddle, mandolin, bodhran, uilleann pipes and even penny whistle, to name just a few, while performing a wide range of music styles including Country, Bluegrass, Folk, Irish 

Tonight’s performance will highlight the songs that were sung by the Irish immigrants who were instrumental in the building of the Erie Canal and the Irish heritage.  The Dady Brothers play with an endless supply of energy.

Come to the Women’s Rights National Historical Park and enjoy an evening of Irish music in the venerable WESLEYAN CHAPEL.
