TRADITIONAL IRISH MUSIC DAY
SATURDAY JUNE 10 @ NOON ~
The GAC will host the first annual Traditional Irish Music Day (“Trad Day”)in the Pub at noon. There will be a rapid fire series of music sets featuring numerous All-Ireland Champion musicians and singers, as well as our own local musicians and dancers. Featured performers include Brian Conway, Mattie Connolly, Damien Connolly, Don Meade, Josephine McNamara, Loretta Murphy and many more, including our own Shamrogues and Might Shamrogues.
A formal concert in the Carolan Room will follow the pub sets, at 7pm featuring the renowned uilleann piper Cillian Vallely (of Lunasa fame), All-Ireland Champion fiddle sensation David Doocey and Ryan McGyver on guitar and songs. Admission to Concert: $20.
We’ll cap off the evening with an open session back in the pub immediately following the concert. So plan to join us for an extraordinary day of music and song, and bring the family. This is a rare opportunity to introduce your children to their Irish musical heritage.
