Chief Francis O’Neill Irish Music Festival
Chief Francis O’Neill Irish Music Festival

A festival of Irish music in honour of Chief O’Neill is being held in Tiburon, California from February 23 – 25, 2018. It looks to be an exciting celebration of O’Neill’s life and legacy not far from where he herded sheep in the Sierra mountains as a young man. It is organized by one of his descendents. For full details check out the festival website.

Here’s one of the great hornpipes that O’Neill collected during his time there: Off to California.
