Máirtín O'Connor Trio

  • The Duncairn Duncairn Avenue Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT14 6BP United Kingdom (map)

Doors 7.30pm
Tickets £12.50

Individually recognised figureheads of the tradition, Máirtín, Cathal and Seamie have built solid reputations as master musicians with astounding skill, diversity and virtuosity. Together they produce a vibrant and musically charged experience that redefines one's concept of brilliance, verging on perfection. If this musical powerhouse does not get you to your feet, nothing will.

Máirtín O'Connor (accordion) is one of the most respected and best loved musicians ever to emerge from Ireland. As a soloist with the first Riverdance orchestra, through his work with De Dannan, Midnight Well and Skylark and also as a solo artist, he has quite simply gone where no Irish accordion player had gone before.

Cathal Hayden (fiddle, banjo) needs no introduction to anyone even remotely familiar with traditional Irish music. A multiple All-Ireland Championship winner, he achieved world-wide recognition as one of the founding members of Four Men and a Dog. He is one of Ireland's top fiddlers and his solo banjo performances are quite simply showstopping.

Seamie O'Dowd's (guitar, vocal) musical abilities have become increasingly familiar at international level in recent years. Rooted deeply in the traditional music of Sligo, he has played in many genres of acoustic and electric music. He toured the world for a number of years with Sligo trad legends Dervish and has recently played both home and abroad with Liam O'Flynn, Matt Molloy and Mary McPartlan.

Ages 16 and up only. Patrons aged 16 and 17 must be accompanied by an adult. No admittance for patrons under 16.
