JOHN GRIFFIN FILE PHOTO | Before you hit all the parades the area has to offer,make sure to listen to a video clip of some Irish music from a concern held in Southold Saturday.

A trio of Irish musicians performed during a fundraiser for St. Patrick’s R.C. Church in Southold Saturday.

Button accordion player John Whelan performed with Gabriel Donohue, who adds vocals and is adept at many instruments, and fiddler, mandolin player and guitarist Eamonn O’Rourke at the concert.

Mr. Whelan is a seven-time All-Ireland button accordion champion. Raised in North London, he moved to the United States over 30 years ago and appeared in the original Broadway production of “Riverdance.”

Check out a two-minute video of them performing below.
