Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More

I was sad that Karan Casey had to cancel at the last moment due to her mother's brain cancer and emergency surgery. Susan McKeown was a great choice replacement. She and John Doyle's unexpected reunion after 17 years made for special evening in it's own rights.
I asked to sit in the front row and was very pleased with the intimacy of that seating. I normally sit further back. Unbeatable service at the Triple Door, from attentive servers to sound and production quality.
With the discounted tickets via Goldstar, I am happy to be able to go out and hear more music than I would otherwise during this down ecomomy.
Once heard, you would never take Grammy-award-winning vocalist Susan McKeown for anyone else. After singing on the streets of her native Dublin as a teenager, Susan left for New York with a bursary from The Arts Council of Ireland and a scholarship to the American Musical & Dramatic Academy, and soon became a regular performer at the legendary East Village club Sin-É. The enlivening intelligence of her songs marked Susan as a distinctive talent. Her debut album Bones (1995) garnered wide critical acclaim, established her reputation as an inventive songwriter with a powerful voice, and set her on the road to an international touring and recording career. Along the way she has boldly yet lovingly re-imagined Celtic music, bringing it immeasurably enhanced – yet spiritually intact – into the new era of world music. Ten albums later Susan has a catalog of music that solidly spans the realms of world music and rock.
John Doyle gifts as a guitarist, songwriter, vocalist, and producer have played an essential role in the ongoing renaissance of Irish traditional music. As a member of Irish-American supergroup Solas — and a highly sought-after session player — Doyle pioneered a rhythmic, sophisticated approach to Irish guitar accompaniment, setting a new standard for the instrument.
