Described in the New York Times as “probably the best accordionist in Ireland”, JACKIE DALY was a central figure in some of the most dominant groups playing Irish music in recent times. His performances with bands such as De Danann, Patrick Street, Buttons and Bows, Arcady, Reel Union and Kinvara all attest to his wonderful music and versatility. 

MATT CRANITCH is renowned as a fiddle-player and teacher. He has performed extensively at concerts and festivals, on radio and television, and has presented lectures, master-classes and workshops on various aspects of Irish music.

PÁDRAIG KEANE (piper) will also guest on the night. Pádraig was TG4 Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2011. He has absorbed the music of master pipers Willie Clancy, Seamus Ennis and Seán Mc Kiernan while developing his own personal, creative and exciting style. He has toured America (as soloist with The Irish Chamber Orchestra) performing Termōn - a piece for uilleann pipes and strings by Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin - which was commissioned for the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

Tickets €15 can be purchased on the door or from Vanessa at 087 2661822 or Brian 086 8238764.
