The Cape Cod Museum of Art will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a “toe tapping” concert featuring renowned Celtic performers Rose Clancy and Max Cohen. The show takes place on Sunday, March 17 from 2:30 – 4 PM and is part of the CCMoA’s ongoing Music & More Concert Series. Fiddler Rose Clancy and guitar player and vocalist Max Cohen will delight guests with a mix of traditional and contemporary Irish music.

Cohen has been playing and writing for the guitar for more than thirty years. As an accompanist, he is always looking for something to engage the listener - a clever twist, an unusual chord or a poignant harmony. As a performer, his attention to detail is what truly distinguishes him, as his playing is characterized by technical precision and exquisite tone. Cohen has played and toured all over the U.S. and Canada,. and currently lives on the Cape where he is a mainstay on the local music scene. In addition to accompanying fiddlers, he is a regular accompanist of renowned folk singer Priscilla Herdman and plays with the Martha's Vineyard-based group The Misfits of Avalon.

Clancy was born in New York into a musical family hailing from County Armagh,

Ireland, an area immersed in Traditional Irish Music. Her musical career began at an early age performing with her family’s musical group, The Clancy Tradition. She learned traditional music from her father, Eugene Clancy of the Irish Ramblers, and by sitting in with the band at “ceilidh’s (Irish dances) with great traditional musicians such as Felix Dolan, Brian Conway and Mike Melanophy. After a successful career in NY, Clancy moved to Boston to attend the North Bennett Street School where she studied violin making. Upon graduating, she founded The Chatham Fiddle Company where she teaches, makes and repairs instruments, and runs a boutique concert series featuring some of the finest talent from the Celtic music genre. Clancy performs throughout the Northeast has released several CDs.

After the performance, guests can mingle with the musicians over coffee, tea and cookies. Before or after the concert, attendees can enjoy a delicious prix fixe meal at the popular Encore Bistro & Bar, just steps from the Museum.
