Event Details

In one of a series of three concerts at An Grianan Theatre, Letterkenny being filmed by Aniar TV  and broadcast by TG4 at a later date, Diane Cannon, Manus Lunny and Theresa Kavanagh will be joined by Clann Mhic Ruairí and Honeyfeet.

Forged out of the centuries-old traditions of her native Donegal, acclaimed traditional singer, Diane Cannon (pictured above), brings the songs and the music played by the hearth fire of a long gone céilí house to modern audiences.

Manus Lunny lives in the Donegal Gaeltacht and comes from a family steeped in the musical tradition of Ireland. A gifted instrumentalist, singer, composer and producer, Manus has earned a reputation as one of the most significant performers in traditional music.

Theresa Kavanagh has performed at some of Celtic Music’s largest festivals, such as Celtic Connections, Le Festival Interceltique de Lorient and Celtic Colours, and has also worked with leading musicians like Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Manus Lunny, Michael McGoldrick and Donal Lunny.

Clann Mhic Ruairí is a Donegal family group, made up of siblings Tony (singer), Aodh (singer/guitar), Seán (singer), Dónall (singer/percussion) and Tony’s daughter Megan (piano and singer). As a family they were raised on the songs and stories of the Rann na Feirste Gaeltacht.

Honeyfeet have spent the past nine years tearing around festival stages and theatres, clubs and fields melting down blues and pop, jazz and disco, pushing air molecules around with instruments and making friends in the process. It helps that they are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly “a remarkable singer and flautist who…can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul” (The Guardian).

Tickets, each costing €27.50/€22.50 (conc) plus €1 booking fee, are available from https://eaf.ticketsolve.com/shows/873626751.
