Paddy Keenan & Steve Cooney Satharn 23 Lúnasa 8.00in @ An Droichead

Iad beirt ina laochra ó thaobh an cheoil thraidisiúnta de, bhuail agus sheinn an píobaire uilleann/ feadánaí Paddy Keenan (The Bothy Band) agus an sárghiotáraí, Steve Cooney (Stockton’s wing), le chéile den chéad uair breis agus 25 bliain ó shin.


Two titans of traditional Irish music, legendary uilleann piper and whistle player Paddy Keenan (The Bothy Band) and exceptional guitarist, Steve Cooney (Stockton’s wing) first informally met and played together over 25 years ago. They repeated that alliance earlier this year for a one-off fund-raising event. With Paddy based mainly in the US and Steve busy on his many projects internationally, we are delighted that the duo will renew acquaintances again for what is sure to be an explosive performance at this year’s Féile.

VäsenDomhnach  24th Lúnasa , 8.00in @ The Black Box

I gcomhpháirt le Moving On Music


Tá an oiread sin measa acu ar Väsen i mBloomington, Indiana, go bhfuil sráid ainmnithe ina ndiaidh acu. Tá ceol na dtriúr Sualannach seo idir íogair agus fhíorfhuinniúil, an comhcheangal foirfe de thrí “ghuth” ionstraimeach, an vióla agus giotár 12-théad atá tiúnta ar dhóigh mhalartach.


They love Väsen so much in Bloomington, Indiana, that they’ve named a street after them. The Swedish

trio’s music is a force of nature, both delicate and intensely energetic, it is the perfect marriage of three

instrumental “voices”, the nyckelharpa, the viola and an alternatively-tuned 12-string guitar. Olov Johansson’s nyckelharpa is central to the group. Unique to Sweden, its combination of fiddle-style bowing, keys and strings, produces a singing sound like no other instrument. Johansson and violist Mikael Marin met as teenagers in 1980 and quickly began to develop a musical kinship. When they met guitarist Roger Tallroth in 1989, they found their ideal rhythmical partner, creating music that was rooted in tradition, yet remarkably new.
