Calling David Munnelly a box player is – like calling Muhammad Ali a boxer – true but reductive. As someone who grew up playing traditional music, he plays Irish dance tunes in the style of a box player. He plays them with a flare and level of mastery you would expect from someone as talented and dedicated to the music as he is. From a young age, he has been driven by an innate musical curiosity and rapidly acquired fluency. Munnelly began pushing his chosen instrument further than most to discover what more it could do, what more it could help him to say.
The venue is now Church of Ireland.
