Cillian and David

Armagh-born Cillian Vallely plays the uilleann pipes and tin whistles with Lúnasa, one of the finest bands in the modern history of Irish traditional music. He recently collaborated with Mayo-based fiddle player David Doocey for a wonderful duet recording, The Yew and the Orchard. Scotsman Alan Murray will provide sings and bouzouki accompaniment.


Friday, May 17: Frankie Gavin and Catherine McHugh
Galway fiddle, flute and whistle player Frankie Gavin is one of Ireland's greatest traditional musicians. He was founding leader of the legendary band De Dannan and has made some of the most influential traditional music recordings of all time. It's been quite a while since Frankie performed in New York and this concert with stand-out piano accompanist Catherine McHugh is not to be missed!
