STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Tarleton's Department of Music is hosting a night of Celtic music featuring Tommy and Saundra O'Sullivan on Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 7:30 p.m., in the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center theatre. Admission is free and open to the public.

Acclaimed as one of the great contemporary folk voices of Ireland, Tommy O'Sullivan, "stellar guitarist," has remained one of the treasures of traditional Irish music for many years. He has toured throughout North America and Europe, appearing at many major venues and festivals. O’Sullivan has recorded three albums as a member of Sliabh Notes, as well as a duet album with Bothy Band piper, Paddy Keenan.

Houston native Saundra O'Sullivan sang in many choirs and was a featured soloist but pursued nursing as a career. She became interested in traditional Irish music, which led her to attend an annual Irish music retreat in Midlothian, Texas, in 2007. There she met Tommy O'Sullivan and began to return to her love of singing. She has now become a very welcomed addition to the vibrant local music scene in Dingle, Ireland, where she and Tommy have lived since their wedding in 2010.
