Dónal & Micheal Mc Cague, Brian McGrath & Maggie Carty - Matt Molloys, 27th March

This time last year Dónal Mc Cague was preparing for his performance at the Gradam Ceoil Awards 2013.  This year he has moved on and has shown that his 2013 award for Young Musician of the Year was richly deserved.  On Thursday 27th he will appear at Matt Molloy's in Wesport, Co. Mayo with Brian McGrath, Maggie Carty and brother Michael Mc Cague.  Michael Mc Cague has just released a  new album of self compositions called The Waylaid Man and Dónal appears on a number of the tracks.  It is exceptionally good.  We will feature it as part of a new initiative that we will be starting shortly on Tradconnect called  "Official Online Album Launches" which you can read about here. We are basically introducing our members and readers to the first official sounds from new releases.

In the meantime we spoke to Dónal about this new quartet.  He confirmed that this recently formed, exciting quartet have put their own slant on some traditional tunes as well as adding some newly composed tunes to the mix.  Donal, Michael as Brian have performed and recorded on a regular basis over the past few years.  Check them out this Thursday night at Matt Molloy's
