Event Details

Master musicians John Carty and Mike McGoldrick come together for this highly anticipated performance.
John Carty is a leading exponent of the North Connacht style and has impressive knowledge of the music of Sligo emigrant musicians. Carty was awarded the TG4 Gradam Ceoil Traditional Music of the Year award in 2003. He has released several solo albums on fiddle and banjo including I Will If I Can, Last Night’s Fun and At It Again. He has also recorded a number of duet albums including Pathway to the Well and Out of the Ashes with flute-player Matt Molloy, At Complete Ease with fiddle-player Brian Rooney, Settle Out of Court with his daughter, the singer and banjo player Maggie Carty and most recently The Wavy Bow Collection with his son, fiddle player James Carty.
He has been joined in this musical exploration by accomplished piper, Mike McGoldrick. A co-founder of Flook and Lúnasa, and a linchpin of Capercaillie’s line-up since 1998, Manchester-born flute/whistle and uilleann pipes maestro Michael McGoldrick has in recent years performed around the globe in Mark Knopfler’s band – including a tour with both Knopfler and Bob Dylan. Despite this lengthy list of stellar collaborations, though – including Youssou N’Dour, Zakir Hussain, John Cale and the Transatlantic Sessions – his work as a soloist and composer has been showcased in three solo albums. On top of all his other projects he also fronts the exhilarating Michael McGoldrick Band.
Together John and Mike will explore the exciting and innovative combination of the banjo with uilleann pipes, as well as utilising fiddle, tenor guitar and flute. They will be accompanied on the night by Matt Griffin on guitar.
