Dick Gaughan is one of those musicians who simply must be heard perform live. And now Athlone audiences will get a chance to see him tonight, Thursday October 9.
The passion that he has, and that clearly shows in his music, has not dulled one iota in his last four decades of performing.
Gaughan was brought up immersed in the musical traditions and culture of the Gaels, both Scots and Irish, which naturally, therefore, provide the foundation for everything he does.
He has been a professional musician and singer since Jan 1970, has been playing guitar since the age of seven and made his first solo album in 1971. Working mainly in the areas now known as folk and Celtic music, he has recorded quite extensively since then in many countries and in various combinations. He has also worked extensively as a session musician in a wide variety of musical styles.
