"In this year of the commemoration and celebration of 1916 it is important not only to remember our honourable dead but also to honour our inspirational living. In the company of some of the artists that have travelled the road with Tony and been inspired by him, Dublin City is delighted to celebrate Tony Mac Mahon’s art with this tribute and benefit concert in City Hall. Performances on the night will in include Tommy Doran, Peter Carberry & Padraig McGovern, Mary & Andrew MacNamara & Sorcha Costello, Steve Cooney, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, Martin Hayes, David Power, Tríona and Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill, Noel Hill, Jack Talty, Cormac Begley.
Opening remarks by Gerard Flynn, and Carl Corcoran will MC this event.
The concert will include the launch of Tony’s latest CD – an album of solo slow airs recorded before Tony retired from public performance due to a tremor in his hand. (The album can be pre-ordered at from Raelach Records. www.raelachrecords.bandcamp.com)
All the proceeds from the event will go towards Tony’s healthcare and welfare needs.
