Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a few days early with the East Coast’s most beloved traditional folk music duo, Evans and Doherty.
Kevin Evans and Brian Doherty have been an integral part of the East Coast music scene for over four decades, and have been together as Evans & Doherty for 39 years. To capture the essence of an Evans & Doherty performance, take a lively blend of traditional, original and contemporary songs, add a liberal sprinkling of stories and humour, then sit back and enjoy these fine entertainers.
“… they are an accomplished musical duo. They can start toes tapping with a rousing drinking song or bring a tear to the eye with a lament on the futility of war.“
-The Daily Gleaner
As well as performing front and center on stage, Evans & Doherty are involved with many aspects of the music industry. Brian owns and operates Eastern Entertainment Agency, a booking agency and production company which coordinates tours of Atlantic Canada for many Canadian and international acts. Kevin owns and operates Modtrad Music, a publishing company, through which much of the material performed by the duo is published and licensed.
As a songwriter and producer, Kevin has enjoyed success; his song “Christmas Memories” achieved platinum status in Canada for John McDermott. Tommy Makem and Liam Clancy recorded “The Orchard”, another of Kevin’s songs. Stompin’ Tom Connors recorded Kevin’s “Silver Sea”, a great compliment considering Stompin’ Tom didn’t usually record other people’s material.
Start your St. Patrick’s Day celebrations early with Evans & Doherty at the Chester Playhouse!
