A Song for Brian O'Donovan
Brian O'Donovan was an extraorinary man.
Born just over the road in Clonakilty, he spent most of his life in Boston where he became the city's premier champion of Celtic music and culture. He was a regular visitor to our festival for many years, including last year while he was battling his illness, and was undoubtedly our number one Stateside promoter, sending countless visitors our way through his radio show A Celtic Sojourn
Brian was known for his generous spirit, kindness and mentorship and he touched the lives of many in the music industry. He truly was a great friend, so kind and so positive, always ready to offer advice and support, and he took great pride in seeing our festival grow.
