Currently on Tour in Germany and Russia today’s concert from St Patrick’s Festival Glasgow 2013
The Second Concert today is excerpts from St Andrews In the Square concert in January 2013. Following its successful debut as a week-long city-center event last March, the Glasgow St Patrick’s Festival a, hosts of this collaborative concert showcase for the UK’s Irish musical, featuring 13 musicians from four different cities.
A Glasgow contingent of eight, largely drawn from the Comhaltas/St Roch’s Ceili Band ranks, might seem like an unfair home advantage, but there’s little doubting that London-born accordion firebrand Damien Mullane (with ex-Lunasa guitarist Donogh Hennessy), Leeds guitar/piano/fiddle duo Chris O’Malley and Des Hurley, and Manchester singer-songwriter, fiddler and tin whistle ace Grace Kelly will collectively hold their own
Glasgow’s St Patrick’s Festival runs from Wednesday 5 March until Sunday 16 March 2014 in venues throughout Glasgow.
