Cook Library Center Recipient of WYCE's Hat Trick Series Fundraiser!

On Monday March 9th at One Trick Pony Grill & Taproom in downtown Grand Rapids, the
Cook Library Center will be the beneficiary of a concert-fundraiser hosted by 88.1 FM WYCE.

The concert, which begins at 7:30pm, features Irish band BEOGA.

Beoga (Irish word for ‘lively’) are a five-piece traditional band based in County Antrim, Ireland. The band was drawn together after ‘jamming’ in a ferocious music session at the All-Ireland Fleadh in August 2002. Their unique sound features the twin duelling accordians of Seán Óg Graham and Damian McKee, along with four times All-Ireland bodhrán champion Eamon Murray and pianist Liam Bradley. In 2005, Beoga were nominated by Irish Music Magazine for the best traditional newcomer’s award. With the addition of one of Ireland’s premier young singers, Niamh Dunne, Beoga are confirming their reputation as one of the most exciting acts to emerge from Ireland in recent years.

During the concert, a hat will be passed to collect donations from the audience for the Cook Library Center - GAAH will receive a check for the total amount raised that night.

This event will be more successful the more people we can get to attend. It is a great opportunity to go out for an evening with family and friends, enjoy live music and a great meal, and support the Cook Library Center. Please join us!
