Mick Conneely, Tommy Keane and Jacqueline McCarthy

September 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Mick is one of the most acclaimed and respected fiddle players in the Irish tradition. To date, he has played, toured and recorded with many artists, most notably De Danann. In 2001 his debut solo album ‘Selkie’ was released to critical acclaim on the prestigious boutique trad label Cló Iar-Chonnacht, and he has recorded on numerous albums to date. Mick is a leading exponent of the 6-string Greek bouzouki in Irish traditional music.

Tommy learned the uilleann pipers from the greats like Brian Gallagher, Pat Mitchell and Liam O’Flynn while attending the Willie Clancy Summer School, which has greatly influenced his repertoire and style of playing. He released his first solo album, “The Piper’s Apron”, in 1991 and his duet album “The Wind Among the Reeds” with his wife, Jacqueline McCarthy. Tommy is currently the Honorary President of Na Píobairí Uilleann.

Jacqueline has a legacy of music in her family growing up learning the concertina and playing legendary players like Máirtín Byrnes, Raymond Roland, Roger Sherlock, Danny Meehan, Paddy Taylor and Bobby Casey. Her musical talents have taken her worldwide, performing in places like the Royal Albert Hall in London, Poland, Egypt, Greece, Jordan, Zambia, and the US.
