At the launch of the temple bar tradfest it was amazing to hear Mairead Ní Mhaonaigh mention – at such a high profile gig – where some may not know who or where Seamus Ennis now sat with his uileann pipes…. so many didn’t by the way
Take a listen….
Anyhows…. of course Mairéad was there to launch the temple bar tradfest 2010 that takes places 27th – 31st January 2010. Whilst I was there the Kilfenora Ceilí band also put on a little of a show…. It wasn’t exactly Connors pub…. [more The Clarence Hotel… 😉 ] but credit where it’s due – they gave a decent taster of what to expect.
If you are around the area for it – let me know how you got on 😉
mild update of sorts:
got this in and what can I say…. was kind of looking for the connection…. is that the right word…. anyhow…. it is the guys and businesses of the temple bar traders who are putting this gig on…. and rightly sothey should get the mention…. loads of eateries and trad sessions going free down there as well as the paid gigs. Gallaghers are just of of many. Go say hi… It’s important we have this gig next year…. and the year after
