Afternoon Trad with The Knotted Cord Quartet

21st September 2018 @ 4:00 pm

Fine music, songs and entertainment are in store from four distinctive performers at the heart of the Irish music tradition. Slides and polkas, jigs and reels, solos, duets, trios, and songs with entertaining speech introductions will make this an event not to be missed!

Seosaimhín Ní Bheaglaíóch is from a celebrated musical dynasty in West Kerry, bringing rare songs from her own home area as well as other favourites she has learned over the years. Fiddle-player Gerry Harrington is also from Co. Kerry and has that county’s Sliabh Luachra tradition to draw on, as well as the music style of Co Sligo where he has spent much of his life. He has composed music and recorded with flute-player Peter Horan and accordion player Eoghan O’Sullivan.

Accordion-player Charlie Piggott is a legendary musician and one-time member of the group Dé Dannan, who has studied traditional music and has a unique and personal style of playing.

Uilleann piper Peter Browne completes the line-up – he learned music in his youth from celebrated pipers Leo Rowsome, Willie Clancy and Séamus Ennis, played with The Bothy Band, and has worked for 40 years as a traditional music producer and presenter in RTÉ.

Sponsored by Off the Square.
