Event Details

Music starts at 7pm.  

Uilleann piper Cillian Vallely and flute player Kevin Crawford are both members of the band Lúnasa, one of the most acclaimed and influential bands in the recent history of Irish music.The rich interplay of flute and pipes (all the richer when the two perform on C-pitched instruments), moving freely from strict unison to dinstinct harmonic and rhythmic variations, the beautiful sound of combined low whistles, the extraordinary technical precision of the lead players, the creative chord progressions behind the tunes, are all here.

Originally from Co.Armagh, Cillian Vallely has played and recorded with Bruce Springsteen, Natalie Merchant, Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Tim O’Brien, and Riverdance. Born in Birmingham but now living in New York City, Kevin Crawford is an exceptional traditional musician and was awarded the title of Irish Echo Musician of the Year in 2000 following the release of his 2 successful and influential solo albums, “In Good Company” and “D Flute”. He has also toured with Moving Cloud, Grianan and The Teetotallers with John Doyle and Martin Hayes. 

Free parking. All ages venue.
