The Rapparees 15th Anniversary Weekend



'The Rapparees have been playing music together since school and this year celebrate their 15th year making folk music. As part of a series of gigs across Ireland and Europe, the lads will be doing back to back shows in Duncairn on Saturday 13th, and Sunday 14th May. 

The Rapparees are Joe McKeague (Guitar/vocals), Gerry McNeill (Guitar/vocals/banjo), Kevin Mawdsley (Fiddle/whistles), Conor McCaffrey (banjo/guitar/tenor guitar/mandolin) and Eamon Rooney (Bodhrán). 

Belfast based, the lads cut their musical teeth as students in the Holylands area and their first album Clarity was played out in The Hatfield Bar, where they first built up a following. All these years, and two more studio albums later, the lads are set to revisit the old favourites, as well as showcasing some of the new material for their 4th album, to be recorded this summer.'
