James Keane is the recipient of this year’s Irish Artist in America Achievement Award. The award is presented annually by the Traditional Irish Music Education Society (TIMES), the parent organization of the O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat, to highly-respected individuals who have advanced the teaching and performance of Irish music or dance in the United States. Their contribution to and stewardship of these traditions are noteworthy and deserving of recognition.
As with any tradition, Irish music is bequeathed to the next generation by those who respect its past, cherish its present, and preserve its future. James Keane embodies these values.
