Presented By Young Auditorium and Cultural Affairs - Join us as some of Wisconsin’s very best Irish musicians and dancers kick off Young Auditorium’s 2019-2020 season! Derek Byrne and Paddygrass take the stage with an energetic mix of Irish, Bluegrass, and Gospel music. No matter how many times you see Paddygrass there is always something new to discover! They’ll move you to sing, dance, drink and forget all else.

Derek Byrne left Ireland at the age of 21 and toured the world with Riverdance as a singer and musician. After meeting his wife backstage in Milwaukee, he settled in Wisconsin in 2001, and has been a feature of the local Irish scene ever since. Over the last 10 years, he’s led Paddygrass in assembling a collective of the area’s most talented performers. There may be no better way to kick off Young Auditorium’s new performance season than with these amazing artists!
