Letterkenny Trad Week is set to bring local audiences a unique one-off concert experience not to be missed.
The concerts sees the only Irish performance and the Irish launch of the eagerly awaited new album ‘Between Wind and Water’, by the internationally renowned String Sisters, featuring six of the world’s finest female fiddlers, at An Grianán Theatre, on Sunday, January 21st.
The performance is one of only three Irish and UK concerts following headlining appearances at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections and the prestigious Sage Gateshead (Newcastle).
The concerts will feature the superb fiddle playing and singing talents of Donegal’s Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, alongside Grammy-nominated Chicago artist Liz Carroll, Shetland virtuoso Catriona MacDonald, Scandinavian ‘hardanger’ exponent Annbjørg Lien, Swedish singer and fiddle player Emma Härdelin and Kentucky-born former Riverdance lead, Liz Knowles.
The richness and diversity of the programme on offer ensures that there will be few, if any, better traditional concerts to be enjoyed anywhere in Ireland this year.
The ten-piece ensemble also includes the incredible musical talents of Dave Milligan on piano, Tore Bruvoll on guitar, Conrad Molleson on bass and James Mackintosh on drums.
The concert opens with a new composition written by Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh that will be premiered on the night by Coirm, the brilliant young group from Letterkenny’s Ceol na Coille traditional Irish music school.
The concert starts at 8pm and tickets can be booked at An Grianán Theatre on 0749120777 or www.angrianan.comTags:
