Further Event Information
Liam Ó Maonlaí and his all-star band went on their first national tour in May 2015, performing seventeen consecutive nights in church venues throughout the country. Ré, pronounced ‘ray’ and meaning ‘moon’ or ‘era’ in Irish features some of Ireland’s most innovative and decorated musicians. Maitiú Ó Casaide, a Dublin based piper, received TG4’s Young Musician of the Year Award 2015. Cormac Begley’s concertina playing has been described by The Irish Times as ‘a master class in timeless musicianship’. Eithne Ní Chatháin, a highly celebrated traditional singer and fiddle player from Co. Kildare, is breaking new ground in indie-folk under the alias Inni-K. Founding member of the Hothouse Flowers and revered songwriter and accompanist, Peter O Toole from Dublin adds a depth of musicality and sensitivity to this eclectic group.
Winners of last year’s TradFest Temple Bar Showcase, Louth contemporary folk favourites Kern are fresh from high-profile appearances at Fleadh Ceoil na hÉireann and Fleadh TV and a US trip to play shows at the enormous Milwaukee Irish Fest. The band’s live set includes tracks from their album, the critically-acclaimed False Deceiver, which was produced by Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa, The Waterboys) and has received widespread radio and press. The band comprises champion fiddler Barry Kieran, uilleann-piper Brendan McCreanor and singer/songwriter SJ McArdle, all three men well-known in their respective fields. As a band they have toured very extensively over the past couple of years, honing a thrilling live show which is at once lyrical and visceral.
