Why not join Seán Ó Sé (sean nós), Martin Donohoe (accordion) and Seamus Fay (lilter) for a fantastic night of music, with songs in both Irish and English, yarns, storytelling, lilting and good old style traditional Irish music?

The event is on Friday, August 7 at 8pm and if it’s anything like last year’s performance in Strokestown Park House, then you are in for a treat!

Seán Ó Sé’s fine tenor voice is frequently heard on radio and he is regularly featured on television. His recording of “An Poc ar Buile” was the nearest the Irish language came to enjoying a pop chart hit, and many years later that song is still in demand! A masterful singer and storyteller.

Martin Donohoe is a gifted traditional musician, highly regarded in traditional circles for his dynamic personal style on the accordion, improvisation and his unique individual interpretation of music. Martin’s individual style of creative expression on the Button accordion is based on creativity as the freest form of self-expression.

Martin and Sean will be joined by Seamus Fay, “The Cavan Lilter” who has been recognised at four All-Ireland Fleadh’s where he was crowned all-Ireland lilting champion.

He has performed regularly around the country and also abroad. An extraordinary lilter, bringing lift, rhythm, style and soul to this often overlooked art form within the Irish musical tradition.
