Concerts in the Courtyard: Na'Bodach

Jul 23 (All day)

We are excited to announce that this free outdoor concerts series returns in 2023, and features a diverse lineup of entertainers, representing the many cultures that make up central New Jersey. They all start at 2:00 pm.
Grant funding has been provided by the Middlesex County Board of County Commissioners through a grant award from the Middlesex County Cultural and Arts Trust Fund.
The "Concerts In The Courtyard" series is held in the East Brunswick Municipal Courtyard, between the library and the township building. Concertgoers are advised to bring something to sit on, like beach chairs or a blanket. In case of inclement weather, the performance will move indoors.

Additional funding is provided by the East Brunswick Friends of the Library.

In 1999 three friends, Casey Jones, George Zienowicz and Andy Redmond, decided to get together to explore the music of the Celtic countries - specifically the songs known by Irish and Scottish soldiers and the Celtic music that evolved in America. With the addition of two more friends, Bud Osthaus and Glenn Owens and, (since all members were a bit older than their “garage band” days), the name Na’Bodach, (Gaelic for “not old men”), seemed appropriate.  

Today, despite some member changes, the band is still dedicated to exploring the Celtic tradition - adding older and newer songs and tunes from the Celtic diaspora. The band was never interested in reproducing the music in the "pure drop" manner of a traditional acoustic setting, but modernizes the music with electric instruments and contemporary rhythms, harmonies and styles, but always with respect for the tradition.
