Traditional Irish Music
Ennis Trad Fest kicks off next week and looking at their schedule there is a lot to look forward to. There will be several new albums launched, many of which we have already featured here on Tradconnect as part of our Download Centre now called TradRaidió. For many, Ennis will be the first place to hear some of these artists. live.
Jason O’ Rourke will launch his new album called ‘The Northern Concertina’ on Sat 7th November in Lucas’s Back Bar. You can read all about the album and Jason’s background in our launch article from a few weeks ago.
A more recent collaboration and recording is Ulaid from Dónal O’ Connor, John McSherry and Seán Óg Graham. They are on tour at the moment and will be winding their way to The Old Ground Hotel in Ennis, for a launch on 8th November. This is an impressive trio that are part of so many albums each year as arrangers, producers and accompanists. To see what they can do on their own check this gig out.
Also on the bill on 8th November will be the hottest ticket around at the moment - Lynched. A recent appearance on Later ...with Jools Holland, will have done them wonders. A must see event for anyone that wants to hear some modern gritty folk music.
There are also a number of new albums being launched at the festival that we have not featured yet on the site. 'Tunesmith' by Antóin MacGabhann will soon be added to our Download Centre and he will launch his great new fiddle album on Sun 8th in The Old Ground Hotel.
Claire Egan will launch her much anticipated ‘Turning Tides’ album in The Front Bar (Queens Hotel) from 6-7pm on Saturday 7th, followed by Mick Kinsella & Steve Larkin with their debut between 7 and 8pm at the same evening.
