Irish Balladeer Paul Carroll in concert, Tuesday, March 15 @ 7pm

     The Friends of the Dover Public Library are pleased to present Irish balladeer Paul Carroll in a musical performance on Tuesday evening, March 15 at 7pm in the Library Lecture Hall.
     Paul Carroll grew up in Dublin during the ballad boom of the sixties where the pubs were packed with folk singers and ballad groups.  It is there that he found a love for the music and songs that were to be part of his life. He credits his mother for giving him the gift of song.  She was a fine singer in her own right and he remembers fondly the “hooleys” in the house.
           Paul emigrated to Australia in the early 70’s but he never strayed very far from the music, singing in the folk clubs of Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. During his time in Melbourne he was a founding member of the Celtic band, Poteen, who were Australia’s premiere Celtic band, sharing the stage with icons like Eric Bogle, The Dubliners, The Furey’s and Boys of the Lough.
           Paul’s latest CD is “The Road You Take”. He has made his home in Derry, NH for nearly 25 years.  Join us at the library for this delightful performance, just before St. Patrick’s Day!
      For more information, call the Dover Public Library at 603-516-6050.
