Blackthorn/ Irish Pub Night at The Franke
The Franke Center’s popular Pub Night returns in 2019 with one of Michigan’s best Irish bands, Blackthorn. Featuring traditional songs of emigration, sea shanties, lively jigs and reels, and ancient airs combined with some of Ireland’s best contemporary songs, Blackthorn creates a musical experience that captures the history and legend of Ireland and its people. Each member of the band plays multiple instruments, including wooden flute, accordion, tin whistle, five string banjo, cittern, bones and more. These instruments complement the lead vocal of Belfast native Richard McMullan and the band’s tight blend of four part harmony.
