Event Details

Uaine comprises Donegal fiddler, Bríd Harper; West Limerick concertina player, Tony O’Connell; Carlow’s Lisa Butler on vocals, and Paul Meehan (from Manchester via Armagh) on guitar, mandolin and banjo. The band released its debut album, The Dimming of the Day, just before the start of the pandemic. So they are pleased to have the opportunity to perform it live at long last.

Ademar has also been a guest performer with  Sharon Shannon in concert with Imelda May, Frances Black and Mary Coughlan.

Accordionist, Keelan McGrath, from Borrisokane in County Tipperary won the 2018 Seán Ó Riada Gold Medal competition.

Moyra Fraser-Foster is originally from Aberdeen, Scotland and started playing music at the age of 8. Moyra is a multi-instrumentalist playing the piano accordion, piano, flute, clarinet and saxophone. Moyra is the keyboard player and musical director of the duo, Foster and Allen.
