The Dock is delighted to welcome Goitse & Annagh two exciting young traditional Irish bands to Carrick on Shannon for a double bill of hi-energy Irish music with a twist tonight, Wednesday, May 28.
Goitse, a quintet of very talented young musicians are making a name for themselves as one of the most sought after bands amongst connoisseurs of Irish Traditional music, having won feverish critical plaudits for their Dónal Lunny-produced second album Transformed.
Featuring Colm Phelan (bodhrán), James Harvey (banjo), Aine McGeeney (vocals/fiddle), Tadhg O Meachair (piano accordion) and Conal O Kane (guitar), Goitse’s distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with well-known traditional tunes, a gripping rhythm section and sweet, charming vocals.
They played a storming set at the Sligo Live festival in 2012 and we can expect more of the same tonight in The Dock.
Originating in Achill Island, Co. Mayo, Annagh bring their fresh and innovative brand of original and traditional tunes to The Dock as an opening act for Goitse.
Featuring Sean Lynch, Michael Lavelle, Kevin Gielty and Alan Hughes playing a combination of uilleann pipes, border pipes, Scottish small pipes, flute, low whistles, strings and percussion, they continue to develop their own unique style, bringing the music in new directions.
It’s a great opportunity to see these excellent young musicians at the start of careers that, judging by their music, are set to soar in the years to come.
Tickets are only €15/€12 and are available from The Dock box office on 0719650828 or on line at www.thedock.ie
