A gig for Mícheál Ó Domhnaill

Just received word of this from Tom Sherlock. Quite a gathering and you never know who else is likely to show up on the night.

The tragic and sudden death in July last year of Mícheál Ó Domhnaill deprived the world of Irish traditional music of a quiet hero. His family and friends have come together to celebrate his life and music in a "Ómós- A Gig for Mícheál" to be held on May 24th, 2007 in Dublin’s Vicar St.

Mícheál Ó Domhnaill, singer and guitarist, was a founding member of seminal bands Skara Brae, The Bothy Band, Relativity and Nightnoise. He forged influential musical partnerships with Mick Hanly, Kevin Burke and Paddy Glackin and oversaw the production of many albums for other artists like Noel Hill and Tony Linnane. As a song collector working with Breandán Breathnach and as a radio presenter (The Long Note) Mícheál left a legacy of enduring quality.

Sisters Maighread and Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill have assembled a remarkable gathering of traditional musicians and singers to celebrate the life and music of their brother. On stage at Vicar Street on May 24th next will be…

MAIGHREAD & TRÍONA NÍ DHOMHNAILL, PADDY KEENAN, DONAL LUNNY, MATT MOLLOY, KEVIN BURKE, PADDY GLACKIN, MICK HANLY, NOEL HILL & TONY LINNANE, MAIRÉAD NÍ MHAONAIGH, MARY BLACK, MOYA BRENNAN, BRIAN DUNNING, MAIRTIN O’CONNOR & CATHAL HAYDEN, DÁITHÍ SPROULE, CONALL Ó DOMHNAILL, JIMMY CROWLEY and other special guests.

All proceeds from the concert will go to The Irish Traditional Music Archive. Tickets at € 35 are available from Ticketmaster www.ticketmaster.ie from April 20th and Claddagh Records phone.01 6770262.

Re: I was there first….

You’re kidding, right?

Re: I was there first….

Fair play Fergal, I’d say your credentials to post it would have to be seen to be believed.

Re: I was there first….

The main thing is that everyone knows now. But I thought of posting it first! so youve only had secondhand fun really..

Re: Omós do Micheál Ó Domhnaill

By the rules of plagerism, you Backer, was the first ta put the flyer up, so you expressed the idea first. By my reconning therefore the idea to put up here belongs to you. So … sorry I can’t go, just a tad too far away, but it sounds like a not to be missed and fitting tribute.

Re: I was there first….

Never mind Fergal, you were a tad slow off the mark. Next time you’ll think of sharing stuff more quickly.
