ornamuse, shawm, rauschphieffe – or, as he explains, “generally anything that requires a lot of hot air”. At the heart of David’s work is his extensive collection of songs from the Maritime tradition. To date, David has recorded four solo CDs; his latest, Last Trip Home, was released in the Fall of 2009 and features his daughter, Linnea, who is also a Revels performer.
David has performed with Revels since 1980 as a singer, instrumentalist and, since 1991, as Master of Ceremonies. Since 2014, David has served as Artist in Residence at Revels and has presented his acclaimed School Enrichment Programs to schools across the region as an extension of Revels Education. He runs tours of Boston Harbor during the summer months, leading over 5,000 inner-city children on boat trips to George’s and Spectacle Islands. He also directs the narration program for Boston Harbor Cruises and hosts the Brunch Cruises every weekend from May to October.
Brian O’Donovan is the second youngest of nine children, born in 1957 in Clonakilty,West Cork. O’Donovan studied at UCC in the 1970s but now lives in Boston, where he works as a broadcaster for WGBH, a public radio station. He presents a show that explores “traditional and contemporary music from around the Celtic world”. Although Brian is widely known today for his work in public broadcasting, music production, and as a curator for live events, his earlier professional career was in a very different world. He held management and executive positions at then Foxboro Stadium, the home of the New England Patriots. O’Donovan lives in Cambridge, MA and has four grown children: Aoife, Ciaran, Aidan, and Nuala and two grandchildren, Ivy Jo Jacobsen of Brooklyn, NY, and Nomi Francis O’Donovan of Denver, CO.
