Niamh Parsons, Ciarán Tourish, Liam Kelly and John Doyle

Music Network presents a gathering of titans from trad super-groups Arcady, Altan, Dervish and Solas – vocalist Niamh Parsons, fiddler Ciarán Tourish, flautist Liam Kelly and guitar virtuoso John Doyle.

Time to come in from the cold and gather round as four leading lights of Irish trad join forces in what promises to be an unforgettable night. At the forefront of the Irish music scene for over 25 years, they’ve performed in every corner of the globe.

Leading the charge is Arcady’s Niamh Parsons, a peerless balladeer with one of the most distinctive voices in Irish music.

Donegal fiddle maestro and long-time member of Altan, Ciarán Tourish is fêted for his incendiary improvisation and cascading arpeggios, providing the perfect foil for the invention and rhythmic drive of flautist Liam Kelly. A founder member of Dervish, Kelly is equally at home trading riffs with James Brown, The Buena Vista Social Club or Sting.

Add to the mix John Doyle’s signature guitar sound, heard on recordings by Solas, Joan Baez, Usher’s Island, Linda Thompson and Tim O’Brien among others, and you’ll find no finer musical company to carry you through January with a light heart and a skip in your step.
