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.

Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny
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 accompanishment is an ongoing influence in the wider world of Irish music. The two, in their seperate ways, have contributed to a veritable renaissance in Irish traditional music. Lunny and Irvine will present a programme of Irish music and Andy’s songs with a bit of Eastern European music. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see these two legens of Irish music on stage together on as part of TradFest.
