Tim McHugh is a flute player from Newport
in Co. Mayo. He started off learning music from family and local music teachers
John Hoban and Marion McCarthy and later from musicians locally and at sessions
throughout the country. As well as local musical influences like the Langans and
accordion player Seamus Heneghan, he is strongly influenced by Connaught flute music, in particular the playing of Jimmy Murphy the East Mayo fiddle player.
In 2012, Tim was awarded the prestigious Sean O’Riada award for his flute playing.
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.
