Concert in the Park: Blarney Hearts


Sep 1, 2017
07:00pm – 09:00pm

Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo (map)

Irish in nature, but infused with an eclectic mix of Americana, Blarney Hearts will round out this week's Concert in the Park series with their many shades of festive music.

As the founding member of former band Vinegar Hill, and now Blarney Hearts, Michael Cunningham (guitar and vocals) has the good sense to surround himself with great musicians. His knack for arranging and composing brings new ideas to many of the band's beloved, traditional songs.

Dana Ingle (lead vocals and banjo), known as the band’s golden boy, has been a lifetime choir member. With experience as a trumpet player in the Ohio State Marching Band, he still marches with the alumni band as they step out to form the Script Ohio in the stadium each fall. A longtime fan of Irish music, Ingle now joins Blarney Hearts to lend his vocal talents.

Les Helms (keyboard and vocals) draws his musical energy from his free-thinking quirkiness. Raised in a musical family, he was 17 years old before he realized that not every family gathered around the piano on Friday nights and traded off harmonies. Blarney Hearts is Helms’ first foray into Irish music and, to date, it has only enhanced the experience for the entire band.
