INISHFREE GOES TO SEA

  •   Jan 30, 2022 -  Feb 6, 2022 (rescheduled from 2021)

Join the Inishfree team (Johnsmith, Hugh Carthy, Paddy Downes) and our featured Irish musicians as Inishfree goes to Sea on an amazing journey through the southern Caribbean! 

 

Our featured Irish performers include:

John Spillane

John Spillane is a musician, songwriter, performer, recording artist, storyteller, poet, dreamer. The man and his music are pure magic. John is a native of Cork, the County he lovingly describes as “the centre of the universe,” and it has been a huge creative influence on him. Vocally, he is quite unique with an almost sean nós-like (old style) element in his singing and he is said to have a voice “full of honesty, commitment and sensitivity. ”

“He’s carved a niche writing melodic, compelling, simple songs. Spillane is at his best when his delivery is unforced and lyrical.” Oliver P. Sweeney, The Ticket, Irish Times

Blackie O’Connell and Cyril O’Donoghue 

(‘Foolin in Doolin’) 

Blackie O’Connell is one of the most exciting uilleann pipers in traditional music. He has his own distinctive style and is currently living, and playing, at the heart of Irish music in County Clare. Blackie regularly tours Europe, USA and the Far East and is recognizable from his role as an ambassador for Irish Tourism.

Cyril O’Donoghue, bouzouki player and singer, is a prominent feature in Ennis and County Clare’s traditional music scene.

Seamus Begley

Seamus Begley is the possessor of one of the tradition’s tenderest voices. It embodies a vulnerability that seems at odds with his garrulous personality. An interpreter completely at home in that delicate space where singers must venture to fully inhabit a song. The Irish Times

 

 Cathy Jordan

Roscommon born Cathy Jordan has been a professional singer with traditional group, Dervish, for over 25 years now. She is a self-taught guitar, bouzouki, bodhrán and bones player.  She has led Dervish as front woman through thousands of concerts in hundreds of cities in nearly 40 countries.  Not only is Cathy a renown Irish artist, she also leads two Inishfree Tours each year.
