Loved seeing Daire Bracken (also of Slide) in Electric Ceilí mode but without the electric part. (Also got to meet Daire afterwards and he was kind enough to give me a copy of their forthcoming CD for my son, who saw them recently and cried at the thought that he wouldn’t see that exact concert ever again! More anon about the CD.)
Was also blown away by The Third Twin with Eoin Dillon (of Kíla) on pipes and Steve Larkin on fiddle. I’d heard Steve play twice before, and Kíla a few times, but this was my first encounter of Eoin’s solo project and I am keen for more.
Also got to say hi to Emer Mayock who was just in from her live performance and chat on the Radio 1 Arts Show, about Tarab. Emer will be performing in three different assemblies at the Festival of World Cultures in Dun Laoghaire this weekend coming.
