House Concert
Blackie O’Connell and Cyril O’Donoghue

Thursday, September 28 - 7pm. 202 Main Street, Barriefield.  Kingston
Michael ‘Blackie’ O'Connell (pipes) and Cyril O'Donoghue (guitar, bouzouki, voice).

Michael “Blackie” O’Connell is one of Ireland’s best players of the uillean pipes. Studying under his father and then with Irish gypsy musicians (including the great Limerick piper Mickey Dunne), his virtuosity soon allowed him to play with the best musicians in the country.

Anyone who has visited Ennis over the last twenty years or so will almost certainly have come across Cyril O’Donoghue, for the guitarist, bouzouki player and singer is a prominent feature in the town and Clare’s traditional music scene. He has appeared on numerous recording, with Christy Moore, Tommy Peoples and others.

Tickets $25 at door, $20 in advance.
