Alan Kelly Gang & Eddi Reader

Wednesday, 18 September 2019, 8.00pm

The Alan Kelly Gang, one of Ireland’s leading contemporary Trad acts, teams up with Scotland’s internationally acclaimed and mesmerizing songstress, Eddi Reader (Fairground Attraction). The result is sheer musical synergy in its most natural form. Brimming with powerful instrumentals, alluring songs and buoyant harmonies this is a wonderful union of Scottish and Irish traditional and folk music from true masters. Critics have described it as an astonishing concert, sumptuous and exceptional. Hailed by The Irish Voice as “in league with the best piano accordionists in the world”, Alan Kelly is joined by highly acclaimed New York singer and flautist, Steph Geremia, guitar innovator Shane McGowan, and Trashcan Sinatra’s guitarist and songwriter, John Douglas.
