All the way from Ireland on a cross-Canada tour, Don Stiffe and Rory Makem are at The Rooms to bring us the melodies of traditional Irish music. Don Stiffe is one of the greatest singer-songwriters to have emerged on the Irish folk scene in recent years and his own life story brings a very personal side to his music. Rory Makem is at his best on stage, and captivates his audiences with charisma, passion for the songs, poetry, history, humor and skilled musicianship. Presented by Stagehead Events.
