Tue May 21 2024 at 07:30 pm to 11:30 pm


Grace O'Malley's Irish Pub & Restaurant | Norfolk, VA

Talented artist from the DC area, come join us for some Irish folk music. Pat Garvey has been playing Irish folk music in the Washington D.C. area since 1978. A native of Hungry Hill ("Home of the Irish") in Springfield, Massachusetts, he moved to D.C. to join a folk group called "The Gaels". Pat began a solo career in 1984 appearing in clubs and festivals throughout the U.S. when in 1994 he signed on with "Brendan's Voyage", a duo with keyboard artist Fergus Kennedy. After a stint as the owner of Mrs. O'Leary's Irish Pub in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Pat Garvey is back as a full time performer and may be seen at such venues as The Dubliner in Washington D.C.; Murphy's Irish Pub in Alexandria, Virginia; The Auld Shebeen, Fairfax, VA; Celtic House in Arlington, Virginia; Grace O'Malley's in Norfolk, VA, Kevin Barry's Irish Pub in Savannah, Georgia and Galway Bay in Annapolis, MD and Brian Boru in Severna Park, MD. Stop in for a pint and be ready to sing along!
In May 2015, Washington Post columnist John Kelly, interviewed and recorded Pat Garvey singing "The Wall", which is a song written by Tim Murphy about the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, DC. A very moving song and so appropriate for Memorial Day. If you have a father, husband, son, daughter, brother, cousin, friend, classmate that died in the Vietnam War, you owe it to yourself to listen to this song. This song is also available on Pat Garvey's CD, "A Rose, a Letter, a Poem". See below for CD. The direct link to this Washington Post article and video of Pat performing "The Wall" is here:
