An evening of finest traditional music is on the cards when three top musicians -
Liam O’Connor, Caoimhín O' Fearghail and Noel Hill – combine forces for Bridge, Bellows and Bow at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday September 12 at 8pm as part of a Music Network tour.
Spanning three generations, Liam O’Connor (fiddle, viola ), Caoimhín O' Fearghail (uilleann pipes, flute, guitar, vocals ) and Noel Hill (concertina ) - all TG4 Gradam Ceoil winners – are united by a deep knowledge and love for the music of the legendary masters of Irish tradition: Coleman, Ennis, Clancy, Potts and Tóibín. For this tour, these three stellar soloists are sure to delight trad fans with their fresh, vibrant take on the classic Irish traditional music repertoire, as well as digging deep into the vaults to unearth some lesser known melodies from manuscript sources. Expect an evening of powerful dance music, lively jigs and melancholic hornpipes, poignant Gaelic slow airs and sean nós songs, all laced with a healthy dose of folklore and personal anecdotes: a top class gig under the Music Network banner.
