Traditional Irish Music at the Library
Thursday, March 17, 2016 | 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
With the talented father-son duo, Eddie Coffey & Josh Coffey
Eddie Coffey was raised in western Kentucky, and grew up listening to old time country and bluegrass music playing with his father's band on the state park circuit. Primarily a guitarist, Coffey learned to play upright bass at age 48, when his son Josh asked him to join the band Bawn in the Mash and record on their debut album 'Welcome to the Atomic City'.
In addition to Bawn in the Mash, Eddie also plays with The Wheelhouse Rousters and Dan Knowles.
Josh Coffey currently teaches music lessons daily at his Allen Music Store studio. A home grown string player that learned at the knee of older musicians, Josh Coffey has spent most of his life creating: singing, playing, performing and writing. Having begun performing at just five years of age, Coffey's music career already spans two and a half decades. In 2005 Coffey became a graduate of Murray State University with a Bachelor of Science in Music, where he studied violin and viola as well as tuba. He also performs in the groups, Bawn in The Mash, The Wheelhouse Rousters and Solid Rock-it Boosters, and is a frequent sound engineer and guest musician throughout Paducah.
All programs are free and open to the public.
