Event Description

Blackie O’Connell , 2019 Irish Music Tours

  

Wild Atlantic Music Tours takes great pleasure in announcing that Michael ‘Blackie’ O’Connell will lead two tours in 2019.  Blackie is one of the most exciting uilleann pipers in Traditional Music. He has his own distinctive style and is currently living, and playing, at the heart of Irish music in County Clare. Blackie regularly tours Europe, the USA and the Far East and is recognisable from his role as an ambassador for the Irish Tourism board.

At concerts and sessions Blackie performs with gusto, and audiences are swept away by his exuberant and fast flowing piping style. He was taught the uilleann pipes by the great Limerick piper Mickey Dunne. His influences are the playing of Paddy Keenan, who is a regular visitor to his home in Clare, Finbar Furey and the great Johnny Doran.

Join Blackie and a host of friends and experience traditional music at its best during an unforgettable trip along the Wild Atlantic Way. Meet some of the region’s best known trad musicians as they join Blackie for dedicated intimate and informal sessions each evening.

The ‘Clare Tour’ is a 6 day / night tour around the ‘Spiritual Home of Irish Trad Music’ during which we visit Ennis, Doolin , Milltown Malbay and a host of other famous trad locations. Enjoy the spectacular scenery the West Coast Of Ireland has to offer and visit world famous locations such as The Cliffs of Moher & The Burren. Experience a warm Irish welcome in luxury hotels in Ennis and on the Wild Atlantic Way.

 

Music on the Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way is a tourism trail on the West Coast of Ireland. The stunning 2,500km of coastline offers breathtaking scenery, invigorating sea swells, gastronomic gems and a warm welcoming atmosphere. The WAW is a haven for traditional Irish musicians. In every town, village and remote townland dotted along the Western Coast, there is a wealth of traditional Irish music sessions to be enjoyed. These sessions are informal and often impromptu, making the Wild Atlantic Way a little piece of music heaven

 

Music Tours

All our tour groups are accompanied by professional Irish musicians.  Wild Atlantic Music Tours also organise evening sessions dedicated to the group. These sessions will feature local musicians who will share music and stories in an informal and intimate environment.  For further information on tours, please contact info@wamt.ie or visit our website at www.WildAtlanticMusicTours.com .
