Arts notes

Energetic, Irish music trademark of bohola

An Irish musical group that has been described as "an acoustic power trio for the new century" will perform Friday in Lawrence.

Chicago-based bohola, above, will play at 7:30 p.m. at St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, 5700 W. Sixth St.

The group is composed of piano accordion master Jimmy Keane, fiddler Sean Cleland and singer, dordan and bouzouki player Pat Broaders.

Keane has played with the likes of Liz Carroll, Michael Flatley, Mick Mahoney, Seamus Egan and Eileen Ivers. Cleland, winner of numerous fiddle competitions, is founder of the alternative Irish/Celtic rock group The Drovers. Broaders, who immigrated to America from County Wexford in the early 1990s, performed with several Irish groups as well as Liz Carroll, Martin Hayes and The Drovers.

Underground venue to exhibit artwork

Citing a lack of venues for young people to show their artwork in Lawrence, the Lawrence Art Collective will present a local art show from 8 p.m. to midnight Saturday at the Pink House, 1131 Tenn.

The evening will mark the second time the Pink House has sponsored a one-night showing of original artwork by local artists. The underground venue is typically reserved for performances by independent local bands.

The exhibit will focus on small, intimate works of art in a variety of media, including printmaking, sculpture, metalsmithing, fibers and photography.
