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.
