Cathy Barton and Dave Para to Perform in Anaheim

By G. Trobridge, 2014-03-20

The Living Tradition Concert Series proudly presents Cathy Barton & Dave Para with special guest Aedan MacDonnell in concert on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 7:30 PM.

Cathy Barton and Dave Para give dynamic performances acclaimed for their variety and expertise in both vocal and instrumental styles. Their repertoire is marked by a special affection for traditional music and ranges from driving string band music to contemplative ballads and airs. They have a knack for finding unusual, rarely heard songs from traditional and contemporary sources in their home region of rural Missouri and elsewhere in the US and Europe. Their more than 35 years of playing together have taken them to festivals, venues and recording and media studios across the United States and five European tours.


In her early 20's, Aedan MacDonnell was introduced to Celtic music then more specifically the Celtic harp. She has since studied with Deborah Friou (another well-known name in the Celtic harp world), in Ireland with Maire Ni Chathasaigh (one of the most renowned harpers in Ireland) and other well-known harpers from Wales, Scotland and the U.S. Her music has reached as far as Russia and she has appeared as a guest harper on several CD's.
