St. Mary’s Church of Ireland will be the venue of a night of music featuring Tim O’Shea and Rosie Healy this Saturday night July 13th at 8pm.
Everyone is invited free of charge to enjoy a great night of Kerry Traditional Irish Music and Song with local Kerry musicians who will also be promoting their new CD.
The Concert will feature Tim O’Shea and Friends. Tim’s musical “friend” is Rosie Healy from Headford who plays Flute and Whistle and also is a talented singer.
The new CD, “another skin too few” will feature new music, recently recorded and also remembers some of the finest Kerry musicians, sadly no longer with us. Their settings and arrangements of these tunes are now preserved, some well known, and some not so well known traditional melodies. The Musicians remembered are: Con Durham(Dublin & Dingle) who lived most of his life on the Dingle peninsula and played Uilleann Pipes and Whistles.John Cronin(Aghadoe & New York), a fine accordion player, and Stephen Carroll(Maulykevane) who also played accordion. The legend fiddler Paddy Cronin of (Kiskeam & Boston) spent over forty years in America, also contributes a tune to the collection. There is an original poem and spoken word piece, recounting a visit to Kerry from Belfast poet Adrian Fox, set to the music of Sigerson Clifford. Tim O’Shea contributes and original song in honour of Con Durham, and also, two Scottish songs picked up by Tim on his travels. So all in all a great local night, of local music, played by local musicians, spanning the generations, in one of Killarney’s most iconic and historic, beautiful acoustic spaces.
