Trad fans in County Antrim
Trad fans in County Antrim are in for a treat with a stellar line-up presented in Antrim town. The event is organised for 15 November as a fundraiser by local club Naomh Comhghall GAC and recognised artists from as far away as Co. Louth will complement the cream of local musicians for a feast of traditional & folk music.
The line-up includes Dundalk legend Gerry O’Connor long regarded as one of the finest exponents of the fiddle in Ireland.
Closer to home, Glenavy native Brendan Mulholland will enthral audiences with his virtuosity and amazing tone on the flute.
Belfast’s mighty fiddle & box duo Mairead Forde & Sean O’Kane are guaranteed to get feet tapping with their high energy style. The pair are occasional visitors to sessions in Antrim but will treat local audiences to some of their material recently presented during their tour in the United States.
Last but by no means least, fans favourites The Rapparees will fly the flag for home-grown talent with Antrim town native and club-man Kevin Mawdsley an integral part of their line-up.
The event will take place in Antrim Old Courthouse Theatre 15 November, 7:30pm.
