Irish Fiddle music with the Colour of Brittany

One of Ireland’s great fiddle players Gerry O’Connor will be joined by Gilles le Bigot, Pol Huellou & Jean-Marc le Coq in a celebration of music from Ireland and Brittany.

The evening will begin at 6:30pm in the Workhouse, Carrickmacross with a workshop in Breton dance led by Pol Huellou. Traditional Breton circle dances are great fun and very social. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and is an excellent introduction to the region’s culture. Please wear comfortable shoes.

The concert follows at 8pm and will feature legendary Irish fiddler Gerry O’Connor with master Breton musicians Gilles le Bigot (Guitar), Pol Huellou (Flute & Vocals) & Jean-Marc le Coq (Accordion). Their recital will showcase the musical traditions of both Ireland and Brittany.

Finally, there will be an Irish music session in Markey’s, Carrickmacross from 10pm. This will feature local traditional musicians and all are welcome.

Admission is free. Culture Night is brought to you by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs in collaboration with Monaghan County Council.
