Top trad at the Linenhall

"Two of Ireland’s finest Traditional musicians, Uilleann piper Diarmaid and guitarist Donncha Moynihan perform at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Thursday November 11 at 8pm.

Diarmaid and Donncha Moynihan first teamed up in 1996 as Calico, a Traditional band that released two award-winning albums, Celanova Square and Songdogs. The band was one of the most influential ensembles to come out of Ireland, touring widely in Europe and the USA. Their latest album, The Lights of Ranzanico, is a collection of beautiful original tunes fused with Irish and European melodies, and once again demonstrates both creative vision and extraordinary lyrical approach to music, and was RT� Lyric FM’s Album of the Month for May. Performing tonight with top drawer guest musicians Christy Leahy (accordion) and Donal Siggins (bouzouki)."
