Clonmel World Music has been bringing great quality Americana, Roots, Bluegrass and Folk Bands to the Raheen House Hotel since 2010.
It is run by local music enthusiasts and volunteers. The gigs take place in the intimate function room of the hotel, in a comfortable cafe-style setting.
The next Clonmel World Music gig takes place on Wednesday, August 1st and features the cream of the crop of traditional Irish Music with The Mairtin O’Connor Band. They are squeezing in a Clonmel gig in between tours of Italy and Canada!
The current line up of the Máirtín O’Connor band has been steadily evolving into a cohesive musical entity. The trio first performed live together at a gig in Sligo.
Such was the musical and personal rapport that developed between them, Mairtin O’Connor, Cathal Hayden and Seamie O’Dowd, have since built a formidable musical relationship, gigging together frequently as well as collaborating in the studio. Individually recognised figureheads of the tradition, they 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.
The doors for this exciting Clonmel World Music gig open at 8pm. There will be no support act and the band will start at 9pm prompt. Tickets are only E15 each and are available in the Premier Music Centre, Clonmel or on 052 6129811 and alternatively from Gerry Lawless on 086 338 9619 or from Martha Beardmore on 087 910 720.
