A canvas of the legendary Kilfenora Ceili Band will go under the hammer in March.
And there have been expressions of interest from as far away as the US.
Measuring 20in x 44in, the painting by Michael Hanrahan has been given a guide price of between €1,000 and €1,500, but could well exceed that, according to auctioneer Rory Guthrie of de Vere Art Auctions.
Formed in 1909 in Kilfenora, a small village on the edge of the Burren in north Clare, the group attribute their longevity to staying true to traditional instrumentation and repertoire and by keeping unnecessary innovation to a minimum.
“Seeing them perform is incredible and that’s what I tried to get on to my canvas,” Mr Hanrahan said. (Independent) >>>
