De Barra brothers at the Ark

Billed as Barco, Cormac de Barra on harp & Éamonn de Barra (Slide) on flute and Fionán de Barra on guitar, were joined by two other of their three  other brothers to play a ‘Gig for kids’ during the Tradfest in the Ark. I took my son, and apart from the distraction of the extroverted kids dancing around in front of the brothers, it was really great. Eamonn was really fantastic with the children, and all the music was lovely. Lots of Carolan (which was when the dancing kids were the problem, despite Eamonn’s finger-to-mouth strategy), but also plenty of super tunes.
