Tony DeMarco in Concert

March 24, 2018
9:00 pm
The Plough & Stars

Virtuoso Irish fiddle player Tony DeMarco will charm audiences in this rare performance. Musical ability runs on both sides of Tony’s family. But, Tony definitely found his way to Irish traditional music via a different path than the one trod by musicians raised in Irish immigrant households. As he puts it, “I never grew up with the competitive Comhaltas scene—I came through the hippie scene, the folkie scene.” He tells the story of how he took up the fiddle and discovered Irish music in his own contribution to these notes, but it is worth repeating here that his first exposure to Irish traditional music was through a Folkways recording of the County Sligo fiddler Michael Gorman. As Mick Moloney states, “It’s hard to imagine an Irish traditional music scene in New York City without Tony DeMarco.”
