Anxo Lorenzo, Dónal O’Connor, Jack Talty and Jim Murray perform at the Linenhall

Join top Galician and Irish Traditional musicians Anxo Lorenzo, Jim Murray, Dónal O’Connor and Jack Talty for what promises to be a magical night at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday January 16 at 8pm as part of a Music Network 14-date nationwide tour.

Over the past ten years Anxo Lorenzo (gaita/whistles ), Jim Murray (guitar ), Dónal O’Connor (fiddle ) and Jack Talty (concertina ) have been at the forefront of highly creative Galician and Irish music-making – as players, composers, arrangers, accompanists, producers and record label owners. This tour brings together both of these rich musical cultures, with virtuosity and a sharp intelligence and gentle curiosity about where this music sits in the world, and how it relates to the world outside. Thrilling, soulful, sincere and highly communicative, theirs is a music of people and place, of stillness, of confluence and of us.
