Doherty Family Seminar with Brian Miller

April 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Doherty Family

In this free webinar, librarian Brian Miller expounds on the music recorded in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1958 by St. Paul musician Marge Sontag (née Doherty) and other members of the Doherty Family.  These archival recordings were made at the home of Tony and Margaret Doherty on Selby Avenue. They feature the family patriarch Tony (1896–1972) on fiddle, daughter Marge on piano and accordion, daughter Mary on piano, and daughter Joan on piano. These recordings are richly supplemented by a family memoir of over 400 pages written by his wife Margaret (1894-1981).


Read ‘The Doherty Family’, an article written by Miller in the most recent issue of the Celtic Junction Arts Review.

This event is part of the Irish Arts Week.
