Fiddler Brian Conway will join accordion maestro John Whelan for an evening of traditional Irish music sponsored by the P.V. O’Donnell Comhaltas. The session is free. BYOB, refreshments served.
Regarded as a premier Irish-American fiddler, Brian performs with a skill, grace and force that are steeped in tradition, but distinctively his own. Well known in the Irish/Celtic community, Conway has won numerous All-Ireland fiddling competitions, and has been called one of the best fiddlers of his generation. Nothing is missed or missing in Brian Conway's Sligo-style fiddling.
Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (CCE) was founded in 1951 in Ireland to promote Irish traditional music, song, dance and language. Today there are 415 branches worldwide and up to two million people attend Comhaltas functions each year.
