New Visions to feature traditional Irish music performance
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — New Visions Gallery welcomes traditional Irish music performed by Fergus McKiernan (fiddle) and Jon Shea (Uilleann pipes) for a Mid-Day Mini Concert on March 15 at noon. The performance is open and free to the public.
McKiernan and Shea work in the medical field but are also musicians with Irish ancestry.
McKiernan is a physician in rheumatology at Marshfield Clinic. He completed his medical degree at the University of Minnesota and residency at the University of Iowa, Iowa City. He has been playing the fiddle for as long as he can remember, but the Mini Concert at New Visions Gallery will be his premier public performance.
Shea works locally as a private duty nurse. He plays the Uilleann pipes, also known as “Irish elbow pipes,” a type of bagpipe that is distinguishable by its tone and wide range of notes.
The New Visions Gallery Mid-Day Mini Concert Series is made possible by a contribution from David and Mary Bjarnason.
