BELLOWS, BRIDGE & BOW

Show starts 8:30pm – No Support

“Breathtaking… a young musician who is essentially standing on the shoulders of giants, but who has worked his way through these influences and created something of his own.” – Toner Quinn, Journal of Music in Ireland, on Liam O’Connor

“Here we have a stylist who has taken his instrument to new heights… Noel shapes each tune as a finely sculpted piece of intricate musical art, delicacy and beauty.” – P.J. Curtis on Noel Hill

Liam O’Connor – Fiddle, Viola
Caoimhín Ó Fearghail – Uilleann Pipes, Flute, Guitar, Vocals
Noel Hill – Concertina

Spanning three generations, O’Connor, Hill and Ó Fearghail – all TG4 Gradam Ceoil winners – are united by a deep knowledge and love for the music of the legendary masters of Irish tradition: Coleman, Ennis, Clancy, Potts and Tóibín.

For this tour, these three stellar soloists are sure to delight trad fans with their fresh, vibrant take on the classic Irish traditional music repertoire, as well as digging deep into the vaults to unearth some lesser-known melodies from manuscript sources.

Expect to hear everything from powerful dance music, lively jigs and melancholic hornpipes to poignant Gaelic slow airs and sean nós songs. Thanks in no small measure to multi-instrumentalist Ó Fearghail, there’s also a wide range of sounds and instrumentation to drink in: with fiddle, viola, concertina, uilleann pipes, flute, guitar and singing in various combinations – all laced with a healthy dose of folklore, personal anecdotes and good humour.

Noel Hill, Tony MacMahon – The Concertina, Come West Along the Road, The New Mown Meadow
