FROM THE quirky, clever, songs of Erin McKeown, to the rousing, imaginative Irish trad of Steve Cooney, Campbell’s Tavern, Cloughanover, will be bursting with great music this Halloween.
US singer, guitarist, and songwriter Erin McKeown will play Campbell’s Tavern, Cloughanover, Headford, this Sunday at 5pm.
Her songs have a mellow, jazzy, inspiration but let her up on stage with only an electric guitar in hand and she will let rip with her jazz rhythm meets rock licks approach. Teh song that best sums her up is the brilliant ‘Born To Hum’ - a tribute to how a good melody sticks in your head and how a song can lift you when you feel down.
Erin will give a songwriting workshop in Campbell’s on Monday at 12 noon.
At 9pm that same day, Australian guitarist Steve Cooney, Manchester flute player Mike McGoldrick, and Altan accordion wizard Dermot Byrne will play Campbell’s.
Regarded as one of the greatest flute players of all time, McGoldrick is also a master of the whistle and uilleann pipes and was a founder member of Lunasa and Capercaille.
Byrne is renowned for his smooth virtuosity on button accordion and his melodic invention. Cooney is a master guitar player who has developed a uniquely percussive style of accompaniment much admired by other musicians.
Tickets are available from Campbell’s on 093 - 35454 and [email protected]
