The Friends of Crawford Park are proud to present Music at the Mansion, an acoustic music series held at the historic Crawford Mansion on the grounds of Crawford Park in Rye Brook, NY.
The mission of Music at the Mansion is to raise money for the park through a series of musical events that feature a combination of nationally-renowned and exceptional local talent. The music will be eclectic, diverse, and will definitely entertain you. Our intimate venue seats about 100 and we host shows approximately every two months. Previous shows have featured Jill Sobule, Bill Kirchen, Sloan Wainwright, Guy Davis, and more.
Our beloved mansion is currently undergoing a major renovation. The walls are up, the windows have been replaced, the new staircase is in, and the elevator arrives next week. New bathrooms, kitchen, and wood floors are coming. Music at the Mansion will resume in Fall 2019.
We’re excited to present our first Irish night featuring singer-songwriter Gerry O’Beirne from Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland.
A renowned singer, songwriter, record producer and guitarist (6 and 12 string guitar, tiple, and ukulele, slide guitar among others), Gerry grew up in Ireland and in Ghana in West Africa, and has since lived in England, California, and Mexico.
Gerry has written songs for Maura O’Connell, Mary Black, and many other great singers. He has toured the world as a solo artist and with the Sharon Shannon Band, Patrick Street, Midnight Well, Andy M. Stewart, Kevin Burke, Andy Irvine, and the Waterboys. He has performed at the White House, opened for the Grateful Dead, played electric guitar with Marianne Faithfull and thought nothing of playing with a Romanian orchestra and choir in a cemetery in Transylvania at night. He has written music for film and theatre and appeared on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. Recently he has been working with New York composer Peter Gordon on a recording of the music of the legendary Arthur Russell, and recorded recently with Peter Gordon and Tim Burgess of the Charlatans.
