Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny

Fleadh 2018: Andy & Donal, Maighread & Triona, Moya & Cormac De Barra and Band

 

Andy Irvine & Donal Lunny, Maighread & Triona Ní Dhomhnaill, Moya Brennan & Cormac De Barra & Band
Wednesday 15th August, 8:00pm  |  Fleadh Concert Dome  |  Tickets: €25

A gala evening with some of the most influential and enduring musicians and singers in Irish traditional music.

Two giants of the Irish trad scene, Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny are uniting for an evening of great music, a mixture of traditional songs, and originals composed by Andy. Between them, Irvine and Lunny have been at the helm of legendary bands like Sweeney’s Men, Planxty, The Bothy Band, Mozaik, LAPD and recently Usher’s Island. Their unique style of accompaniment is an ongoing influence in the wider world of Irish music. Lunny and Irvine will present a programme of Irish music and Andy’s songs with a bit of Eastern European music.

Sisters Maighread and Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill belong to a renowned singing family originally from the Donegal Gaeltacht.  The unique style and repertoire of traditional singing they represent so gloriously together with their distinctive unison and harmonic interpretations make their live performances unforgettable heart-rending events, and the sound of their solo, and combined voices is indescribable but lingers in the memory forever.

Grammy award winner, Moya Brennan, the Voice of Clannad and First Lady of Celtic Music, and internationally renowned harp virtuoso Cormac De Barra both come from large musical families; their mutual admiration for each other naturally developed into a stimulating musical relationship, combining the simplicity, depth and beauty of their extraordinary skills.  For this special performance they will be accompanied by Aislin on guitar bouzouki, vocals, Paul on percussion, keyboards, vocals and Lia on violin and vocals.

Maighread and Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill
Sisters Maighread and Tríona Ní Dhomhanill belong to a celebrated family of singers hailing from the Donegal Gaeltacht. The unique style and repertoire has been handed down to them through generations of the Ó Dhomhnaill family. Added to this is their distinctive unison and harmonic interpretations of Donegal songs and their fluent and accompanient. Together with their late brother Mícheál, a fine singer and instrumental player, they formed the seminal traditional group, Skara Brae in the late 1960’s. It was through this group and its one recording, now a classic, that the regional songs of their native Donegal were introduced to a wide audience both in Ireland and abroad. Their live performances have been described as ‘unforgettable beautiful and heart-rending’. Prepare to be transported by their appearance at TradFest.
