Derek Warfield 2015 _2Returning to Honolulu for two shows at the end of January: Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfe Tones!

Derek Warfield is an old hand in the Irish music business – he was a founding member of the original Wolf Tones (1963-2001) and has performed solo to pass on the musical tradition of Ireland to the Irish of America. The Young Wolf Tones are the newest venture by this legend – a gathering of young musicians to carry on the legacy of the old Wolfe Tones. They’ve performed in hundreds of concerts in six different countries since their creation in 2009.  Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfe Tones are known worldwide for their Irish patriotic ‘rebel songs’ and other traditional tunes. Derek is acknowledged by many in the business as an excellent front man whose introductions help modern audiences to understand the tone and meaning of many an old ballad.

This month they’ll be coming to Oahu for two shows. On Friday, January 30th, Derek and the Young Wolfe Tones will be playing at Anna O’Brien’s – James McCarthy will be the opening and closing act.  Proceeds from this show will go toward Honolulu’s 48th Annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.  Attendees under 18 can come in free!

On January 31st, Derek and the Young Wolfe Tones will be playing at the Irish Rose Saloon, in a show only open to those 21 or older.
