A GIG FOR ALL SEASONS, a concert of sean nós song, ancient harp music, and traditional tunes, takes place in St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church on Thursday May 5 at 8pm.
Singer Róisín Elsafty, piper Ronan Browne, and harpist Siobhán Armstrong return to Galway for this show, following their sell-out performance at the Celtic Connections in Glasgow.
Róisín won the best sean nós singer award in the Irish Music Awards 2010; Ronan is the uilleann piper and singer with Cran. He is a former member of the Afro Celt Sound System and performed as part of Riverdance. Siobhán Armstrong plays historical harps of many kinds and is particularly keen on encouraging the revival of Ireland’s early harp.
Tickets are €15/12 and are available from Galway Early Music (087 - 930 5506, www.galwayearlymusic.com ) or at the door. This is a fundraising concert for The Galway Early Music Festival.
