Music Network brings together three leading lights of Irish traditional music for a unique autumnal tour showcasing the sounds of fiddle, harp, uilleann pipes and whistle, and voices intertwined in song. The three acclaimed virtuosi engaging in this unique nine-date collaboration are Donegal’s Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh  on fiddle and vocals , Dubliner Cormac De Barra on harp and vocals and Wexford’s Mark Redmond on uilleann pipes, flute and whistles.
 
Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Cormac De Barra and Mark Redmond have graced stages and screens around Ireland and the world for several decades, and they are each undisputed masters of their respective instruments, rooted in tradition and with an ear for exploration. Whether onstage at home or abroad, in the recording studio, or the broadcasting studio, tradition and innovation are beautifully aligned with these three artists.
 
Their considerable talents have been the core of long-standing concert collaborations and recordings with supergroups that include Altan, The Chieftains, Alison Krauss, Enya, Clannad, Riverdance, The Brendan Voyage with the National Symphony Orchestra, and the Daoirí Farrell Trio.
 
While Music Network has, to its credit, facilitated many memorable collaborations in the recent past, these particular project promises to be one of the most distinguished.
