Event Description

Pádraic Keane – uilleann pipes
Clíodhna Ní Bheaglaoich- fiddle, viola and sean nós dancing

Uilleann piper Pádraic Keane hails from Maree, Co. Galway and was born into a great musical family in 1991. His father Tommy is a well known piper, originally from Waterford who was taught by the legendary piper Tommy Kearney. His mother Jacqueline McCarthy is a very respected concertina player and is the daughter of the late Tommy McCarthy from West Clare who was a multi-instrumentalist playing pipes, whistle and concertina. Jacqueline’s sister Marion also plays pipes. It is little wonder therefore, considering the love and prevalence of piping on both sides of the family, that Pádraic began learning the pipes at the age of eight under the guidance of his father. He also received tuition from many leading pipers at various summer schools including Robbie Hannan, Mick O’Brien, Emmett Gill, Jimmy O’Brien Moran, Seán McKeon, Brian McNamara and Ronan Browne. His first pipes were a practice set borrowed from Na Píobairí Uilleann. Since then Pádraic has inherited his grandfather’s pipes – a concert pitch set made by Leo Rowsome. When playing solo he likes to perform on a flat set in C made by Geoff Wooff. He has performed at many events organised by Na Píobairí Uilleann, including recitals at Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy, NPU Annual Tionóls, Session with the Pipers in The Cobblestone and Ceol sa Chlub, the latter in the company of his fiddle playing sisters – Siobhán and his twin Maisie-Kate. His music has been broadcast on Clare FM, Galway Bay FM, Raidió na Gaeltachta and RTÉ Radio & Television. Pádraic’s piping comes from the style of Willie Clancy but other influences such as Seán McKiernan and Séamus Ennis are also discernable in his music. He in turn is now passing on his love for piping and has a number of fledgling pipers coming to him for tuition. In 2011 he was awarded Gradam Ceoil TG4 – Ceoltóir Óg na Bliana (TG4 Music Award – Young Musician of the Year).

Tunes in the Church presents an authentic experience of traditional
Irish music, song and dance. Every night presents a different line-up
of some of the tradition’s most respected artists within the ambiance
of the historical St. Nicholas’ Collegiate Church, Galway. Attendees
of these concerts are encouraged ask questions of the artists and to
interact with the performers and occasionally they learn the chorus of
a traditional Irish song.
