O'Brien plays Hawaiian ... and some Celtic and Americana, mixing traditional songs with contemporary ones and originals. It's great to be back at one of my favorite venues on the planet. Come and enjoy the music while you eat delicious food and indulge in some wonderful beverages, all served with absolute excellence. Yes, folks, I love this place (and so does Lupita) and am so glad to be back. Come and join us!

Savor Food Festival
Tucson Botanical Gardens, 2150 North Alvernon Way, Tucson
Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance organizes this incredible event, held annually at the Botanical Gardens and I've been lucky enough to play here each year since its inception. It features over 75 of the region's finest chefs, wineries, breweries, local foods and restaurants, truly a delight for anyone who enjoys eating and drinking! (Remember, Tucson has been recognized as a City of Gastronomy by Unesco and this festival shows you why.) I'll be singing a variety of traditional, contemporary and original songs (Celtic, Hawaiian and Americana). Go to www.saaca.org/Savor.html for more information
