Ger Wolfe with Richard Lucey & Caoimhín Vallely
"The poetic soul of Ireland"
Described by others as a genius, a prophet, and a poet, Cork singer-songwriter Ger Wolfe possesses a rare ability to capture the hearts and minds of his listeners and carry them away in an ethereal haze.
He lives an ordinary life, by day he teaches singing and tin whistle in local schools, he potters about in his garden, grows his own vegetables, loves nature and wears an array of interesting woolly jumpers. By night Ger is a musician whose music and lyrics are the very embodiment of the Irish spirit and easily evoke the essence of the Irish character.
Joined by Richard Lucey, one of the country's finest box players and one of our great pianists, Caoimhín Vallely, this concert will be very special indeed!
"Mick is a songwriter of the first order. His voice is pained, gravelly, and powerful. Recorded or live, it carries through and stops you in your tracks." -- Urban Folk, New York
A rare opportunity to catch a solo performance by the great Mick Flannery.
One of Ireland's most popular performers, Mick is a man of few words but his amazing songs tell you all you need to know about him, a very special talent!
Frankie Gavin & Arty McGlynn
Two of the great names of traditional Irish music bring our 'Four Fridays' to a close.
Frankie Gavin is regarded by many as being 'the finest fiddler of them all' and has played all over the world many times over with the great De Dannan.
Arty McGlynn is probably the most influential guitarist in the history of traditional Irish music and is a Fiddle Fair living legend!
Jimmy MacCarthy Saturday 12th September, Abbeystrewry Church, Skibbereen
One of Ireland's greatest ever songwriters!
