THE LARK IN THE AFTERNOON: CONOR CONNOLLY, SORCHA COSTELLO & PÁDRAIG Ó’DUBHGHAILL
Conor Connolly (button accordion/vocal), Sorcha Costello (fiddle), and Padráig Ó Dubhghaill (guitar) will perform as part of ‘The Lark in the Afternoon’ traditional lunchtime series on 24th March. Both previous recipients of the prestigious TG4 Gradam Ceoil Young Musician of the Year award (sometimes dubbed ‘The Oscars’ for traditional music), Conor and Sorcha are steeped in the musical traditions of their respective counties Galway and Clare. Drawing inspiration from many of the ‘greats’ of traditional music, their masterful playing – both individually and in unison – will leave listeners enthralled. Providing listeners with an insight into a vibrant musical tradition, they will be joined by one of Ireland’s most sought-after accompanists Pádraig Ó Dubhghaill for an afternoon of magnificent traditional music.
In keeping with ‘The Lark in the Afternoon’ traditional series, attendees are invited to bring their instruments and join the ‘Session in the Square’ following the conclusion of the concert.
