Tom Delany & Caroline Keane in Concert
Caroline Keane and Tom Delany , the concert will be followed by a session with all welcome!
Playing Irish traditional music on concertina and uilleann pipes, this young, energetic duo boasts musical expression beyond their years. Their playing stands as a powerful embodiment of tradition, coupled with sheer musical passion.
Caroline and Tom both grew up in houses filled with traditional music. From a young age, Caroline was exposed to the richness of West Limerick and Sliabh Luachra traditional music, an influence which has become the cornerstone of her uniquely vibrant, passionate and emotive style of concertina playing. With an Irish father and French mother, Tom gained his musicality through osmosis, born and raised in a rich environment of Irish music. Inspired by the traveling style of piping, his rhythmic playing is powerful and daring.
Since they began playing together in 2010, while both studying at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick. Tom and Caroline have toured extensively, performing around Europe, Canada and America. Their music reflects their personalities, fun, vibrant and filled with heart and soul.
