Event Details

The Russells Festival Weekend presents At the Racket, led by John Carty, in concert with Oireachtas sean nós dancing champion, Bethan Marsh.

At the Racket is an all-star band with a unique position in Irish music today, inspired in part by the legendary Flanagan Brothers who played in New York in the 1920-30s. They have made three critically acclaimed recordings: At the Racket (1997), Mirth Making Heroes (2001) and It’s not Racket Science (2008).

The members are John Carty (fiddle, banjo, tenor guitar), Brian McGrath  (piano, tenor guitar, banjo), Séamus O’Donnell (flute, saxophone, vocals) and Michael McCague (guitar, bouzouki).

The Russell Festival Weekend is a traditional festival held in Doolin on the last weekend in February each year commemorating the wonderful Russell family from the area. Doors open at 12.30pm with the concert starting at 1pm. Food & wine reception following the concert.
