Live and Local

Mike Kirkpatrick and Kathleen Keane Play Irish, and Del Rey Plays Ukelele


On the Friday edition of “Live and Local,” I’ll welcome two Chicago-based performers steeped in the Irish musical tradition: guitarist Mike Kirkpatrick and singer and multi-instrumentalist Kathleen Keane. Then we’ll hear guitarist and ukulele player Del Rey. All three will play live in our studio, and they’ll be among the many musicians at the fifth Champaign-Urbana Folk and Roots Festival, which happens Friday and Saturday.
