Traditional Irish Music
Hi all, summer has got off to a great start with a great month of gigs in Ireland, France Spain, and Switzerland. The Doolin Folk festival, Ortiguiera and Corberyier were a great introduction to the summer touring season.
The big focus of this summer is another run of gigs in Ireland to promote our new album “Cas”. We will be enjoyed by the incredible Natalie Merchant in Dublin, Dungarvan, Skibbereen and Cork City. She’ll be doing a few of her own songs as well the beautiful version of Bonny Light Horseman that she did on “Cas”.
Further down the road in 2018, we look forward to an October run of gigs in Ontario, the highlight being a gala concert in the prestigious Koerner Hall, Toronto. It’s then on towards Australia, back to Ireland for The William Kennedy Piping Festival in Armagh, and finally our US Christmas tour with Ashley Davis.
Hope to see you all somewhere all the way!
