Marian University Theatre
Marian University presents an evening with award-winning Irish singer/songwriter Eunan McIntyre, a perfect way to enjoy the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. McIntyre (www.eunanmcintyre.com) is from County Donegal in Ireland and is influenced by the beautiful natural surroundings in which he grew up. Best known for his songwriting and warm personality, while on stage, McIntyre can reach into the heart of the audience with his Irish humor and his music.
Having toured the United States, Canada, Luxembourg, Spain, and Switzerland, McIntyre also has a local history, playing the Greening of the Canal in Indianapolis both in 2011 and 2012.
McIntyre has won several song competitions in Ireland and in 2000 he received the Pete St John ASCI award for his song "Josie" which also won the Sean McCarthy All-Ireland traditional Ballad song competition. He won this competition again in 2002, and has on several occasions received first prize in the Clonmany song competition. In 2011 he was a prize winner again with his song "Some day We’ll Fly Away". To date McIntyre has released five albums and a new DVD based on his own material. His most recent album, “The Place That I Call Home” was released this year.
Special guest Jeff Foster (www.stringdancer.com) will sit in with Eunan for this concert. A performer since the early 70s, Jeff has played virtually every style of music over the years, including classical, flamenco, jazz, new-age, rock, country, blues and bluegrass. As a solo artist or band member, Jeff has opened concerts for and/or performed with such luminaries as Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention, John McLaughlin & the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Pat Benatar, Tracy Chapman, John Prine, Taj Mahal, Steve Goodman, Jorma Kaukonen, Rick Danko, The Ides of March, and many gifted, lesser known musicians.
