About this Event

Probably the most exciting trad combinations of recent times, together Matt Molloy and John Carty explore the rich and varied tapestry of the fiddle and flute tradition of North Connaught. Matt Molloy is regarded as the greatest exponent of flute playing alive, a member of the Chieftains for more than two decades he was also a founder member of the legendary Bothy Band. John Carty’s musical prowess has grown steadily since his debut recording 20 years ago and he has since produced a plethora of solo recordings. A member of the bands At the Racket and Patrick Street John finds himself in constant demand as a musician. Both Matt and John are recipients of the prestigious TG4 Traditional Musician of the Year Award. They are delighted to be joined by one of Ireland’s greatest accompanist Brian McGrath on piano. Brian has performed, recorded and toured world wide playing with all the biggest names in Irish traditional music. His subtle and creative approach is the perfect accompaniment to this unique duet.
