While it is not a Christmas show, the idea of giving to those less fortunate is a prime beneficiary of a very special night up in the Boston area on Wednesday, December 4 as part of the Burren Backroom Series produced by Brian O’Donovan of WGBH and Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello, the owners of the Pub.

Since opening the Burren Pub in 1990s Tommy and Louise have welcomed and hosted so many Irish musicians over the years and given them a platform to perform while remaining in the background as ardent supporters.

On this night the spotlight is on them, for it is the release of their first CD, Grace Bay, and many special guests will be on hand to celebrate with them and to share their own musical success.

All the proceeds will be donated to the Somerville Homeless Coalition. It will be a definite sellout for the 7:30 p.m. show but you can try to order them at burren.com.
