Irish fiddle greats for The Crane

GALWAY WILL have a rare opportunity to see two of Ireland’s finest fiddlers - Brian Rooney and John Carty - performing together in concert.

Brian Rooney and John Carty, along with pianist Brian McGrath, will play The Crane Bar, Sea Road, on Friday February 25 at 9.30pm.

Rooney, originally from Kiltyclogher, has been living in London for the past 40 years and is well known on the city’s traditional music circuit. The strength of his tone, the swing of his playing, and the beauty of his variations have established him as being at the very forefront of trad.

Carty cut his musical teeth growing up in London and Brian was one of his mentors. Since moving to Roscommon in 1991 John has become one of Ireland’s most prolific musicians and is widely respected worldwide. He won the TG4 Gradam Ceol Musician of the Year in 2003.

The duo will play music from their new album, At Complete Ease, which was released last week.
