Comeraghs Comhaltas concert in Coolnasmear starring John Canny and Mark Donnellan

New Concert Season:

The 18th Cúil na Sméar concert season gets underway on Saturday October 10th 2015. Once again we present a unique combination of accordion and fiddle rarely heard outside their native Clare. East Clare accordion player John Canny is a rare talent. Typically his style has all the hallmarks of that areas music. Like the better known and widely travelled Andrew McNamara, John’s music is rhythmic to perfection with that subtle laid back feel which distinguishes it from neighbours East Galway or North and West Clare.

Fiddler Mark Donnellan, a member of the Tulla Céilí band, is one of the great characters of Clare music. His stage presence is like a counter balance to fellow musician Martin Hayes. A constantly smiling extrovert his performances at regular local Clare festivals are huge attractions.

Tickets for this unique event will be available from Ben O’Neill’s Music Shop, O’Connell St and The Wine Buff, Grattan Square.
