It may seem ironic that an Irish band would name itself The Teetotalers, but the name makes sense as soon as the tranquil and sobering melodies start flowing from the band’s fiddles and guitars. The trio is led by Paddy Keenan, a legendary Irish musician who has dedicated his life to the preservation of classical Irish song. A master of the uilleann bagpipes, Keenan delivers the essence of Irish tradition and culture to audiences through incredible renditions of its most iconic instrument.

Saturday 4/5. $20-25,7pm. The Haven, 112 W. Market St. 973-1234.
